Congo DRC has won African Cup for local African players for the 2nd time in history. This cohesive team has added the second trophy after wining such trophy in the year 2009. But we can see the importance of having a very competitive internal league in a country. The teams like TP Mazembe, AS Vita, DC Motema Pembe are the strong foundation of this team. It was a wonderful game against Mali at the Amahoro Stadium in Rwanda. In 2009 Congo DRC played against Ghana in the final and Ghana was defeated by 2-0.

The Congolese tactician Florent Ibenge has become a true hero as
his technics left the Mali national team helpless after a 3-0 defeat. This double win of CHAN trophy has become like the AFCON trophies of the once called Zaire. Zaire won AFCON in 1968 and in 1974.
