Hosts Egypt will be facing DR Congo at Cairo Stadium in the second round of the prestigious tournament’s group stage.

“The team is ready for DR Congo and everything is OK, as all players are fit for the game,” Aguirre said in the pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

The Pharaohs secured a narrow 1-0 win over Zimbabwe in the AFCON opener on Friday. DR Congo lost 2-0 to rivals Uganda in the opening match on Saturday.

“Our opponent is a very strong team. We have watched many of their matches and today there will be another analysis session. Our main target is to win and secure qualification for the next round,” the Mexican coach explained.

“I am not worried about the harmony between my players as it will increase by playing more matches.

“We deliver good matches and the performance will be better in upcoming games.

“The match between DR Congo and Uganda was very strange as I was expecting a better performance from the Congolese team. Egypt also was due to deliver a better performance against Zimbabwe.

“We had 17 scoring chances against Zimbabwe. We are second behind Senegal who have 20 chances in the lead. My target is to reach to 25 chances in the coming matches.

“I expect that both teams (Egypt and DR Congo) will be better in tomorrow’s match, as the main target of both of them is to win, with Egypt looking to secure qualification while the opponent wants to revive hopes of proceeding to next round,” he said.

The DR Congo will work hard this coming game in order to avoid a loss and to ensure a positive result against Egypt.

According to Jean-Florent Ibenge. The Congolese coach also stressed that the Leopards vowed to recover from the opening match loss.

“We will play to avoid a loss against Egypt and to win at least one point to help us proceed to the next round. Our strategy will be if you didn’t win, you shouldn’t lose,” Ibenge said in the pre-match press conference on Tuesday.

“The loss from Uganda was difficult, but this is life and we should work and prepare for the must-win Egypt match,” the Congolese coach explained.
