CHAN 2022: Niger Sends Congo Packing After A Goalless Draw

Congo became the second team to exit the TotalEnergies Africa Nations Championship CHAN 2022 after a 0-0 against Niger match in Oran

Congo who had lost their opening game needed a victory to reach the knockout round which they failed to get.

In a dull first half, the Red Devils had the best opportunity, but Mahamadou Djibo made a fine low save on Borel Tomandzoto’s direct shot.

As Pavelh Ndzila had to make stops from Faysal Abdoulaye and Bilyamine Moussa, and Abdoul Aziz Ibrahim skied a shot over the bar from a good position, the Menas almost won the second half.

Deo Bassinga thought he had scored the game-winning goal for Congo in the dying seconds, but the VAR disallowed his curling effort from the edge of the box that had beaten goalkeeper Djibo.

After losing 1-0 to Cameroon in their debut match in the three-team Group E, the draw sees the Congo out the competition.
