After 2009 and his victory in the final of Chan against Ghana (2-0), DR Congo has once again finished in first place in the laminating Mali in the final of the Chan 2016 3-0. Confirming both the odds bookmakers rank their top scorers of the tournament.So far rather discreet, Elia Meshack has been the real poison of the Eagles of Mali.It was he who gave the advantage to his in the first half, on a very bold goal.Following a feint body, he managed to put his body guard of Mali in the wind before kick open the foot at the far post (1-0, 29th). The Eagles of Mali will try to respond well, but this time they fell on the rock. Pressed from start to finish by the Leopards rather legs, the Eagles could not spread their wings, as against the Elephants of Côte d’Ivoire. After the break occurred on the thin edge of the Leopards, Elia Meshack arises again in the second half. Mystifies his vis-à-vis before burning polite young Malian goalkeeper to score in an empty net (2-0, 63rd). At 2-0, the Eagles of Mali are stunned but refuse so far to disarm. Yves Bissouma, the Elephants hunter and his compatriots will make every effort to sound the revolt. In vain. They will in turn be crucified by Jonathan Bolingi in pole position at the entrance of the penalty area, which adjusts a master shot the young Keita who could do nothing about the action of the 73rd (3-0) . This time the Mass was said and Eagles grounded. The victory of the Congolese people is all the more sense they are very present in club competition where they realize significant results with the TP Mazembe, 2015 African champion clubs, and AC Vita Club of Kinshasa, finalist in 2014 of the African champions League. Ultimately, the Leopards will have been thwarted by the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, who had beaten the game in the third day of hen (3-1), and by the Amavubi of Rwanda and the Syli National of Guinea, which had forced them to go through the extra time.
