CAN: Congo held in check by Zambia

Despite a very clear domination, the Democratic Republic of Congo was held by Zambia (1-1) Wednesday evening in San-Pédro during the second match of Group F, after the clear victory of Morocco against Tanzania (3-0 ).

On its first shot, Zambia opened the scoring with a gag goal: following an exit from Rodez (L2) goalkeeper Lionel Mpasi-Nzau far from his goal, Patson Daka quickly played a touch for Kings Kangwa including the long shot ended up in the deserted Congolese cage (0-1, 23rd). Under heavy and humid heat, the DRC of French coach Sébastien Desabre logically equalized four minutes later through Yoane Wissa, the Brentford striker who closely took a right side cross from Cédric Bakambu (1-1, 27th).

Born in Vitry-sur-Seine, Congolese striker Bakambu (32), trained at FC Sochaux and passed through Marseille, played in the French under-18, 19 and 20 teams. On the next day, Sunday, DR Congo will face Morocco and Zambia will face Tanzania.

The Democratic Republic of Congo won the African Cup of Nations in 1968 and 1974 (under the name Zaire), and Zambia in 2012.
