DR Congo

Muteba Kidiaba: Wasn't put the to the test too much, but stepped up when he was needed. Apart from the goal, of course. 6/10

Cedric Mongongu: Got up and down the flanks well, crosses were lacking. Was exposed one or two times. 5/10

Kiritsho Kasusula: Was mostly solid in defence apart from the goal. Didn't give Samassa too much to work with after conceding. 6/10

Mpeko Issama: Partnered well with Kasasula, didn't do too much wrong apart from going missing for the goal. 6/10

Gabriel Zakuani: Got down the flank a few times, lacked a good final ball. Got exposed in defence. 5/10

Youssouf Mulumbu: Battled hard in the midfield, didn't give up an inch. Got forward well, kept the passing simple. 6/10

Cedric Makiadi: Fought hard in the middle of the park, stood firm under pressure. 6/10

Yves Ilunga: Was a bright spark throughout the match, got forward well and combined with Mbokani pretty well. 7/10

Alain Kaluyituka Dioko: Was solid in the midfield, did well to deputise for the injured Mputu. 6/10

Dieumerci Mbokani: Was mostly disappointing apart from scoring the penalty early on. 6/10

Lomana LuaLua: Was largely disappointing, he would feel that he could have done more before leaving the field. 5/10

Deo Kanda: Was largely a passenger for the last 10 minutes. 5/10

Mulota Kabangu: Wasn't on the field long enough to have any impact.


Mahamadou Samassa: Held up to the pressure well. Did well to deal with the aerial threat of Mbokani. Had no chance with the penalty. 6/10

Fousseni Diawara: Got up and down the park well, but will feel he could've done better in attack. 5/10

Seydou Keita: Put in a Man of the Match performance. Won some key midfield battles and led his country to the next round. 8/10

Mohamed Sissoko: Was fighting hard in the middle of the park, but gave away too many fouls. Will be disappointed to be injured. 5/10

Modibo Maiga: Was a bright spark on the flanks today, created a few opportunities and could have scored himself. 7/10
