“It’s unbelievable what the President has done for the team it was indeed a sweet surprise to the entire team for the recognition of our good work in Rwanda.We thank him a team for rewarding us with great gifts that have shocked everyone in the team,” he said.

DR Congo beat Mali 3-0 to win their second Chan tournament since last winning the inaugural 2009 tournament.
