This means they are on the last spot of group D with no point. Congo top the group with 3 points, Burkina Faso and Angola follow with 1 point each.

They played well enough to lead the clash but unfortunately for Song's team, a penalty was awarded against them, through which they conceded one goal.

It was also due to wasted opportunities, which they failed to materialised. There were a good number of instances where they were face to face with the Congolese goalkeeper, but there was no skill for the finishing.

They play their next game against Angola on 20 January 2018.

''I remember when I saw him the first time at Monaco, coming in a bit lost, not knowing anybody, not being rated by anybody as a player and becoming the best player in the world in 1995 and today becoming the president of his country'' the coach of French origin said.

George Weah shall be inaugurated later on this month. He takes over from Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Africa's first elected president.
