Congo and Ethiopia will both be in search of their first points at the 2014 African Nations Championship when they meet at the Free State Stadium on Friday night, kick-off at 20h00.

The Red Devils are currently in third place in Group C with zero points after kicking off the tournament with a narrow 1-0 loss to Ghana on Monday.

However, coach Sebastian Migne says his side have to put the first game behind them and focus on winning their next two games.

“The competition is not over, I spoke to my boys by giving them the example of Spain, who lost their first game in the 2010 World Cup and ultimately went on to be champions,” he said.

“We will fix some errors we identified from the first game before facing Ethiopia and hopefully we’ll qualify after the third match.”

The Walya Antelopes on the other hand sit at the bottom of the group, also with no points, after they were stunned to a 2-0 defeat against Libya.

Ethiopia were among the favourites to reach the knockout stages before the start of the tournament following their positive run during the 2014 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.
