Starting XI: DRC V Mauritania

African Nations Championship

Teams: Congo DR v Mauritania

Date: 14 January 2014

Venue: Peter Mokaba Stadium

The first game of Group D in the CAF African Nations Championship will see Congo DR taking on Mauritania at the Peter Mokaba Stadium on Tuesday.

The clash will match up former winners of the tournament against first time debutants.

DRC won the inaugural CHAN tournament in Ivory Coast in 2009 and are planning to mount a serious challenge for the 2014 crown.

DRC were one of the first teams to arrive in South Africa in preparation for the tournament, arriving in December last year, and they will be expecting to pick up all three points against the first opposition.

For Mauritania, it is their first time at CHAN and it marks an important time in their country’s football as they look to compete with the powerhouses of Africa.

Mauritania have shown fine form on their way to CHAN, losing only one of their four qualifiers en-route to South Africa.

Coach Patrice Neveu has largely been credited with their turn around in fortunate as he has them playing an exciting brand of football.

Here is how they line-up.

Congo DR: Robert Kidiaba, Eric Nkulukuta, Jean Kasusula, Joel Kimwaki, Muselengue Ugenda, Cedrick Mavuanga, Chikito Lema Mabidi, Firmin Ndombe Mubele, Guy Lusadisu, Ilongo Ngasanya, Eddy Ngoyi Emomo

Mauritania: Brahim Souleymane, Ahmed Samb, Bocar Coulibaly, Ibrassi Sy, Mohamed Wade, Yacoub Fall, El Hacen El Id, Moussa Sidi Bagayoko, Abdoulaye Sileye Gaye, Ely Cheikh Voulany, Moulaye Ahmed Khalil
