Huye, Rwanda – DR Congo defeated Walias of Ethiopia 3-0 in Group B opener of the 2016 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) here today.
All of Congo’s three goals came within a span of 11 minutes with Guy Lusadisu (44′) opening the score with a beautiful header just before half-time and Heritier Luvumbu (46′) adding a second just a minute after the start of the second half. Nine minutes later, Elia Meshack (55′) made it three all for the Congolese.
“DR Congo totally dominating Ethiopia in all departments”, wrote sports journalist Collins Okinyo on his Facebook page.
The Walias have yet to score a single goal let alone win a match in the CHAN competition having lost all their three matches two years ago, which resulted in the firing of then coach Sewnet Bishaw.
