Egypt Are The Favourites, Dr Congo’s Coach Concedes Defeat Ahead Of Round Of 16 Clash

Coach of DR Congo, Sébastien Desabre could be playing mind games when he dubbed his team as challengers while painting their opponents, Egypt as favourites. He made the asserting at pre-match press briefing.

Hear him: “Clearly, Egypt is the favourite in this match. We will be challengers and this position suits us too. The match will be difficult because we know the potential of Egypt. But we also know that we have a good margin for improvement. We know what we need to improve.

“Until then, we have shown interesting things but not necessarily validated by victories. My players are motivated. We are going to use the ball, and play our game. We want to show everyone that DR Congo is back.”

In response, the Portuguese coach of Egypt, Rui Vitoria remarked: “Coming here, we knew that we would only settle for the finals so it will be another final against the DRC. They are a good team and will be difficult to beat. We are ready but not 100% due to our numerous injuries. But we have to deal with it.

“We’ve had a bit of bad luck following us from the start but that’s football. We are ambitious. We are going to put our qualities into play. All the teams in this competition are equal”.
