AFCON 2015 Cape Verde 0-0 DR Congo Player Ratings


Vozinha 5

Commanded his area well, but miscommunicated on one or two occasions.

Carlitos 4

Hapless in attack, not much to do in defence.

Fernando Varela 5

Commanding centre-half, snuffed out Congolese attacks

Gege 5

Calm evening

Stopira 4

Unnecessarily aggressive. Gave away bad fouls, not accurate in attack.

Calu 5

Uninspired passing and slow to close down Congolese attack.

Babanco 7

Orchestrated matters in midfield, and lofted inviting balls in from set-pieces.

Nuno Rocha 5

Again the most advanced midfielder, but his defensive contribution was the most valuable.

Ryan Mendes 5

Got the nod over Heldon, but the game passed him by.

Kuca 5

Not as sharp as match against Tunisia. Subbed out early for Heldon.

Julio Tavares 5

Could not break free, but for a few times.

Notable Subs

Heldon 5

Bizarre that he did not start after scoring versus Tunisia, but could not do much in 30 minutes


Robert Kidiaba 6

Stopped everything that came his way

Jean Kasusula 5

Pedestrian outing

Cedric Mongongu 6

Kept Julio Tavares under wraps, played the ball out comfortably.

Joel Kimwaki 6

Shut down Cape Verde attackers in the image of his partner, Mongongu.

Issama Mpeka 5

Active in joining the attack, but could not deliver incisive crosses.

Youssef Mulumbu 5

Started strong, but withdrawn after tearing his hamstring. His tournament is over.

Chancel Mbemba 5

An unusual role in midfield, but provided solid presence

Lema Mabidi 4

Not on ball enough to replicate his performances with AS Vita Club.

Yannick Bolasie 6

Nutmegs, mazy dribbles, little end product. Last year’s Bolasie.

Cedrick Mabwati 6

Most energetic Leopard, but needed to do better in attacking third.

Dieumerci Mbokani 5

Since his introduction the Congolese attack has looked insipid.

Notable Subs

Nelson Munganga 5

Brought on early, but not as creative as Mulumbu.

Jeremy Bokila 5

Tried to dribble through to goal, but unsuccessfully.
