m_Congo takes Rwanda to CAF over Birori

The Congolese Football Federation has lodged a formal complaint with the Confederation of African Football against Rwanda.

The Wasps edged Congo on penalties in the second round of qualifiers of the Africa Cup of Nations Morocco 2015 in Kigali on August 2, after the two teams had tied 2-2 on aggregate.

However, the Congolese officials brought to CAF’s attention that Rwanda might have fielded an ineligible player in the first leg in Pointe-Noire on July 20.

According to Fecofoot, Rwandan striker DadyBirori is holding two different passports and registered under the different name of AgitiTaddyEtekiama in DR Congo where he plays for AS Vita Club in Kinshasa.

Should the continental body decide to uphold the claim, Congo could be reinstated and able to compete in the final qualifying round in Group A with South Africa, Nigeria and Sudan.
