This victory adds to a string of successes under the guidance of coach Sébastien Desarbre. Tshisekedi's support was also pivotal during the Congolese team's impressive run at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Côte d'Ivoire, where their strategic play and determination were evident.


The win over Togo places the DRC in a favorable position as they continue their journey in the World Cup qualifiers. With strong backing from the highest levels of government, the Leopards are poised to tackle the remaining fixtures with confidence and national pride
