DR Congo on the rise, eye World Cup spot under Florent Ibenge

Ibenge is tasked with restoring Congolese football and so far, the signs are promising.

Looking back into World Cup history, Zaire's appearance at the 1974 finals in West Germany is frequently the subject of ridicule. Their 9-0 thrashing by Yugoslavia in Gelsenkirchen is widely regarded as a day of shame for the African game and the rest of the performance by the central Africans left little positive impression. The Leopards were the first black African country to compete on the game's ultimate stage but that breakthrough had a negative consequence for the perception of football on...
