DR Congo – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Leopards" were the bronze medalists in the winter African Cup of Nations. However, they reached their medal in a very peaceful manner. In their 7 matches in the tournament, the Congolese team won and lost once (in the quarterfinals and semifinals, respectively). All other matches ended in draws, and they won two penalty shootouts.

In the qualifiers, their performance hasn't been as impressive. In 2023, they won at home against Mauritania but then lost away to Sudan. Resuming their campaign in the summer, they managed to give Senegal a tough game, making them work hard.

Togo – the shape of the team and its analysis

The "Hawks" made their World Cup debut in 2006 with peak performance from Emmanuel Adebayor, although they didn't achieve much. Recently, they have failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations three times in a row, despite the expansion of the tournament's participant pool.

They started the new qualification with a couple of draws against Sudan and even Senegal. After a series of friendly matches with mixed results (beating Niger but losing 0-3 to Algeria and drawing with Libya), they ended their third qualifier against South Sudan with a 1-1 draw, which felt more like a loss of two points than a gain of one.
