CHAN 2023: Chad-DRC, a first test for Coach Otis Ngoma


Kinshasa, August 26th, 2022 (CPA) – The first leg of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers between Sao A’ of Chad and the Leopards A’ of DRC, on Sunday, in Yaoundé, constitutes a real first test match of an official competition for the national coach, Otis Ngoma Kondi since taking office a few months ago, say Congolese football observers.

For them, since the Congolese coach took the reins of the technical staff of the national eleven, it will be his first try in these playoffs where the Congolese sports public expects from him, a good introduction to the matter before glimpsing the rest. .

Without minimizing Chad, more than one observer of Congolese football sees it as a great opportunity for the Congolese wild animals to bring back a good result from this journey to Cameroon, it is said.

However, the Congolese should nevertheless be wary of the Chadian warriors who arrived in Yaoundé since the beginning of the week and where they delivered a friendly match of the remainder lost, against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

As a reminder, the Leopards A’ have already delivered with Otis Ngoma at its head, 4 friendly matches including two at the international tournament of Algiers with the participation of Algeria, the organizing country; from Benin and Senegal. In two outings, the Leopards had lost against the Fennecs A’ of Algeria (1-3) and won against the Teranga Lions of Senegal (2-1).

Then, there was a double explanation between the two Congos (first leg 1-1, at the Massamba-Debat stadium and the return to the Martyrs stadium in Kinshasa 2-0).
