DRC dealt blow as Bakambu sidelined for World Cup qualifier against Senegal

Bakambu

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) faces a setback ahead of their crucial World Cup Qualifier against Senegal as they will be without the services of star striker Cédric Bakambu.

Bakambu, who plays for Real Betis, is sidelined due to a proximal tendon injury, which will see him miss the highly anticipated clash against Senegal.

The absence of the prolific forward deals a blow to the Leopards as they gear up for their first match in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

The injury setback was confirmed by Marca, indicating that Bakambu’s recovery timeline spans approximately five months, ruling him out of contention for the upcoming fixture against Senegal.

The DRC is scheduled to travel to Dakar in early June to take on the formidable Lions of Teranga in what promises to be a challenging encounter.

Bakambu sustained the injury during Real Betis’ derby clash against Sevilla on April 28, a match that ended in a 1-1 draw.

The absence of the dynamic striker leaves a void in the DRC’s attacking lineup, posing a significant challenge for the team as they prepare to face Senegal in their quest for World Cup qualification.

Despite the setback, the DRC remains determined to put forth a competitive performance against Senegal and demonstrate their prowess on the international stage.

The absence of Bakambu will undoubtedly necessitate strategic adjustments and the reliance on alternative attacking options to compensate for his absence.

As the DRC navigates through the challenges posed by Bakambu’s injury, they remain focused on their objective of securing a positive result against Senegal and advancing further in the World Cup qualifiers. T
