*Stats from the last game*
01. Walter Tavares
Tavares has a little bit of NBA experience and he showed why he is a former 43rd pick in the NBA Draft as he went on complete control mode on both ends. He showed his ability to finish and shoot while gathering rebounds unhinged and at seven foot three inches, few players can match up to him. Walter is a strong favorite for the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy Scenario.
02. Maxi Munanga Shamba
Maxi was the only Congo player to have consistency on offense, shooting an impressive 7/15 from the floor. His ability to penetrate and dip down long-range bombs makes him a complete threat on offense. He has also great passing abilities and was on song against Rwanda.
03. Ivan Almeida
Ivan is the designated 3-pt shooter on Cape Verde but in the last game, he showed he can do much more, having an impact on rebounding, playmaking, and defensive end.
04. Jordan Sakho
Jordan manufactures quality offense inside and can finish through contact, which also allows him to get to the Free Throw Line. He also displays incredible rebounding skills and has been an amazing option for Congo during the last few years.
05. Fidel Mendonca
Fidel was on-song during the last game, burying four out of eight attempts from beyond the arc, making him one of the best shooters among both squads.
06. Henry Pwono
07. Jeffrey Nunes-Xavier
08. Patrick Kazumba Mwamba
