DR Congo team to camp in Oman ahead of 2013 Africa Cup of Nations

By Ameenu Shardow

Ghana’s opponent at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, Congo DR will hold their pre-Nations Cup camp in Oman.

The decision to camp in the oil-rich Arab state is believed to have been mooted by coach Claude Leroy who led Oman between 2008-2011.

The Asian country is said to be ideal an ideal location for preparing teams for major tournaments due to their world class facilities and serene environment to boost the concentration of players.

DR Congo are not leaving anything to chance and want to prepare their team very well in order to cause a major upset at the finals which kicks off on January 19 in South Africa.

The team will also hold a separate camp in South Africa from 8-18 December exclusively for the locally-based players before the foreign legions join in for the camp in Oman.

The Leopards are drawn in Group B which will be based in Port Elizabeth alongside Ghana, Mali and Niger.

They play their first game on January 20 against the Black Stars of Ghana at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth.

    What exactly are our plans for this Afcon? There is no easy road to success so we have to wake up now and plan seriously for this Afcon before we regret later. Ghana has never had an easy match with Dr Congo and Mali before, check our History it has been tough. I remember one match we played against Zaire, the match was so tight it took the incomparable genius of the only maestro in Ghana football before we managed to score a goal. We must be careful.

    @Nana,its true…. we always struggle against DR Congo because they play physical football.I hope AA is aware of this.
