International Latics: Dylan Bahamboula

30 March 2021

'Moyo' featured in both games for Congo as they failed to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations.

After receiving a call-up for the ‘Red Devils’, he played just short of 10-minutes towards the end of the goalless encounter with Senegal in the capital of his home country, Brazzaville on Friday.

Part of the same squad as ex-Latic Christopher Missilou, Group I was settled in dramatic circumstances as they travelled across to the Estadio 24 de Setembro to face Guinea-Bissau looking to avoid defeat to ensure qualification on Tuesday afternoon.

Unfortunately a 3-0 loss followed, Dylan coming on in the 61st minute when they were one-nil down. The final group standings saw Congo finish third, behind Senegal and Guinea-Bissau who have now qualified along with a number of other nations for the competition in Cameroon at the start of the New Year.

Bahamboula will return to the club towards the end of this week and with the elite sport exemption, including the testing procedures in place, can continue training and competing immediately but has to isolate when at home for a short period of time.
