Congo will be without striker Dylan Saint-Louis as well as midfield duo Prince Oniangué and Delvin N’Dinga for Friday’s World Cup qualifying game against Ghana.
Saint-Louis recently joined Paris FC and has been blocked by his new French club and will not get to make his debut for coach Sébastien Migné’s side.
He has however been replaced with Israel-based Mavis Tchibota.
Also, captains Prince Oniangué and Delvin N’Dinga will miss the trip to Kumasi but are expected to be available for the September 5 reverse as they sort out their club future by transfer deadline day.
The Red Devils began training for the Ghana clash at the stade de l’Unité de Kintélé in Brazzaville on Tuesday.
Ghana will host Congo at the Baba Yara Stadium. Kickoff is at 3:30pm.
