Match day 3 will be underway on Thursday night as Tanzania face DR Congo at Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium. Both fixtures in group F ended in stalemates over the weekend as Tanzania drew 1-1 with Zambia and DR Congo also recorded the same result.
These results introduced an interesting twist in the fate of all teams in the group, as all nations can progress if they secure positive results in this round.
About the game
Tanzania are yet to secure a victory in this tournament, after losing 3-0 to Morocco in the first match and drawing Zambia 1-1 on Sunday. Prior to the Zambia match, Tanzania opted for a coaching change. They replaced Adel Amrouche, who received an eight-match ban for pre-tournament remarks implicating Morocco’s influence on CAF.
In Coach Hemed Suleiman’s debut, Tanzania couldn’t clinch their first win as 10-man Zambia rallied for a 1-1 draw. Simon Msuva put Taifa Stars into an early lead in the 11th minute, as Zambia captain Roderick Kabwe received his second yellow card before halftime. However, Zambia mounted a comeback, with Patson Daka leveling the score in the 88th minute.
Conversely, Congo are yet to record a victory in the ongoing AFCON but stay 2nd with 2 points behind Morocco. They clinched their second draw of the tournament when they played 1-1 with Morocco. Silas Katompa Mvumpa played a pivotal role in securing a 1-1 draw for the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the match. Achraf Hakimi initially gave Morocco the lead in the seventh minute, but DR Congo showcased resilience, staging a commendable recovery to earn a well-deserved point in Group F.
