Poor Warriors, damned if they fail, damned if the do not fail
same team we wanted Khama to go and join.
Merveil Ndockyt is on the books of Spanish side Getafe from RCD Mallorca on loan and Thievy Bifouna, who scored the equaliser, plays in Turkey after a time in France, where he was born.
While the Congolese were giving the likes of Bifouna and Baudry, who were born in France, passports to enable them to play for them in international football, we are still failing to sort out the documents of players who have shown their willingness to play for us.
Bifouna, who beat George Chigova on Sunday, scored a brace on September 8, 2014, to help Congo-Brazzaville beat Nigeria 3-2 in Calabar in a 2015 AFCON qualifier, which marked the first time the Super Eagles had lost a competitive qualifier in the Nations Cup in 33 years at home.
If we should mourn a point picked on the road, against such plucky opponents, when we sent in a weakened side, what will Senegal’s World Cup stars, including Sadio Mane, do after being held in Madagascar?
Or Cameroon’s Indomitable Lions who were held by Comoros, or even the DRC stars who failed to beat Liberia and Zambia who have just a point from two games?
We all wanted a win, and so did those fans at Harare Hospital on Sunday, but a point was not a very poor result as these prophets of doom would want you to believe.
After all, these Red Devils are not ordinary, they are a proud African football nation and have won the AFCON title in the past.
And the last time they were here, they destroyed our dreams of making the AFCON finals for the first time in that 2-2 draw at the National Sports Stadium, blamed on the late goalkeeper John Sibanda.
Ask Moses Chunga and Peter Ndlovu and the thousands who remained in their seats at the giant stadium that day, long after the game had ended, about the pain inflicted by the events of that afternoon, and they will tell you these Congolese aren’t ordinary. To God Be The Glory! Come on Warriors!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Khamaldinhoooooooooooooooooo! Text Feedback — 0772545199, WhatsApp Messenger — 0772545199.
