Leone Stars of Sierra Leone and Democratic Republic of Congo will both be looking to get their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers off to a winning start on Wednesday evening at the Lubumbashi Stadium after the two nations lost their Group D opener to Ivory Coast and Cameroon respectively.

Sierra Leone head coach Johnny McKinstry now has an uphill task to force a result in Lubumbashi DR Congo second largest city.

Former Middlesbrough striker Kei Kamara benefitted from some generous defending to finish from close range against Ivory Coast – Leone Stars were handed a late first-half advantage, only for Seydou Doumbia to make an instant impact, coming off the bench to level matters from Serge Aurier’s 63rd-minute cross, before Gervinho perfect run to drilled home a low winner five minutes later.
