DR Congo keeper Kidiaba fires at Ghana: "We don't fear you"

DR Congo keeper Kidiaba is not scared of Ghana

DR Congo goalkeeper Robert Kidiaba insists the Leopards will go into Sunday's quarter-finals against Ghana at the 2014 CHAN without panicking.

Ghana will go into the tie at Bloemfontein seeking revenge over the Congolese  after suffering defeat against them in the final of the maiden edition in 2011.

The Leopards finished second in Group D to book a date with Ghana who topped Group C.

Though Ghana do not appear to be the most impressive side but they are rated ahead of the Congolese.

But Kidiaba insists the Local Black Stars will not get special treatment.

“Ghana are not grand warriors. We are preparing this match with seriousness and we respect our opponent," DR Congo's iconic goalkeeper said.

"It will be tough for us as for them but with God’s hand, we will do everything to progress."

Ghana have the influential midfielder - Yahaya Mohammed, back from suspension and he is expected to play a key role.

    GSN the inaugural tour was in 2009 not 2011. But for kidiaba, we shall show him how to drag how filthy arse across field. What happened when Congo played Tunisia at the same stage two years ago? Dhaouadui scored a spectacular mid second half post hitter and just after the whistle, all Tunisians sat aground and gave a show of kidiaba,s stupidness and today is no different.

    We shouldn't allow naija to win this cup and is time konadu shows us that he can do better as an assistant coach in Brazil!! Our play looks pathetic and we are yet to gel as a team and am surprise that Ghana after three games still hasn't gel! Ghana are slow starters in tournament but progress after the first game but this particular team looks awful!!! I hope konadu proves me wrong tomorrow because his team is disjointed and it shouldn't be so considering the fact that he has four players from the same club and should understand themselves better!! We ll watch tom!!

    This keeper needs to be silence forever because he is always showing disrespect to Ghanaians!!! Tomorrow, our boys should shed their inferiority complex and play like royal Ghanaians!! I respect Congo a lot because they are traditionally one of the powerhouses in Africa football but we have better head to head than them and we have to teach them a better lesson!!! If Nigeria wins the Chan, it means Nigeria is gradually becoming the greatest west African football national of all times and this is the time for Ghana to stop then in this Chan tournament!!!! We should stop Nigeria from winning this tourament!!!! Infamous M.A.D.E
