Sadly for the first time, we played really bad....

And a big team like Club Africian punish this.

 

Still we got into the semi final of the CL in our first attempt.

We made some really nice money.

Things are going really nicely. Is there an overall plan for this save, like move around to other teams or are you going to be solely focusing on DR Congo & Motema?

Ty. Nice that you follow again. :)

 

I would like to stay at Motema and make that a one club save.

Make the Linafoot the best league in Africa (currently 12th), which should take a while.

Also I want to become one of the biggest African youth exports.

Find and develop gems for the biggest club in Europe.

 

With DR Congo the target is clear.

Turn it into a African powerhouse, which dominates the continent and in the end....win the World Cup.

This time compared to China or KSA, I dont have unlimited money and I cant just buy players and wait.

Its all about progress of the league and the national team.

Once we are up in the rankings and with strong connections to France and Belgium, hopefully we can make dual nationality players switch asap.

 

Buy why DR Congo?

I think it got the biggest chances for an African country to win the World Cup. (besides Nigeria)

The ingame stuff like game importance, youth rating, FA financial power etc are pretty decent.

The league is self sustainable.

DR Congo got a population of 115 mio.

AND we can use the power of France and Belgium.

For e.g last intake there where already 35-40 players with dual nationalities in all of Europe

I didnt realized, that we play Uruguay in our friendlies before the AFCON.

They asked us and I accepted it.

 

We travelled all the way over to Montevideo and get a pretty nice draw.

Uruguay is currently 7th in the WR.

Coming Up

There is still more things to winl, since the cup always starts in May.

 

Its an interesting format.

There are prelims rounds which are played in 3 regions.

And after 4 round you are in the final stage.

image.png.27da5caaeaa6393b466850964a19ecea.png

 

Well TP Mazembe failed in the 4th prelim round.

This should be the cup.

Another big draw in my eyes.

Egypt is always one of the best teams in Africa.

Overall I think both friendlies were pretty good.

Great start to the AFCON! Bakambu even missed a pen.

We played really well, hopefully we win the next game against Burkina Faso too.

Mazembe is still miles ahead of us, so this will be an interesting battle in the next years.

 

Also we won the cup and we got into the semi final of CL.

Senegal is the highest rated team in Africa...

Great thread man!

I'll keep following this to see when you win the CL :D

What tactic are you using in this save?

Ty.:)

 

I use my 4231 combined with PIs again.

image.png.46ad29cae6fa5ddac296fec227d00721.png

 

I didnt wanted to use it again, but I have to. If I dont use it, I cant use the best players.

Which PI's if I may ask?

Do you use it both for DR Congo and your Congolese club as well?

@Cheez3y Have you tried calling up Pelly Rudock-Mpanzu yet ?

I just started a new save with Luton Town FC and I noticed Pelly is eligible to play for DR Congo so I thought I would mention it as he been pretty good for me.

I assume you have either called him already or still trying.

Yes, in both teams.

 

PIs based on the players stats. I explained it in my China save.

Basicly..

If you cant shoot, then pls do it less.

If you cant cross, then pls do it less.

He wasnt in my scouting overview and I got the "Players unwilling to consider..." ticked on.

So he isnt currently interested at the moment.

I give him a scout, but he is still at Luton and now is currently in League One.

Yeah understandable. He has performed well for me so far.

image.thumb.png.571dbde09d6f2896da20d783e85a1bf3.png

Apparently he has played for DR Congo twice but I assume in friendlies.

He looks decent.

My scouts are saying he would be a 3/3,5 star player for DR Congo.

Which means he is on the same level as the other mids I got.

But he is an actual B2B which can also dribble. If he wants at some point, he gets a call up.

Ty for the tip.

What a game...

First 90 minutes of fighting.

Then they got the lead in the injury time of the first extra time.

But 2min after the 2nd half starts Matete got us the equalizer.

Pens are always a lottery.

 

 

We play South Africa next.

In the other semi final is bloody Kenya!

Congrats on a fantastic club season, going to be really fun to see if you can keep progressing and win the Champs League. 

Have you got other nations loaded in Africa? 

I use the megapack from Dave and I got all African nations loaded. + Top 5 + Belgium + Holland

 

My scouting network is slowly gettin in the right direction.

All I need are 2-3 more and just better scouts (with decent wages), hopefully some newgens are coming soon.

 

I do a lot of "national team scouting" every call up and got the screen flow adjusted.

Also trails are very useful in Africa as it seems, especially from smaller leagues/nations.

 

I already got a transfer done for 2024 because of it. A newgen keeper from Guinea.

He was call up for the AFCON U23 with 16 years, so he must be decent, since I got the Guinean league loaded.

He came on trail and after 2 weeks, I saw he already got almost every important stat above 10 and he is a Model Citizen!

Easy 70k spent.

 

Currently my setup looks like this:

DR Congo + Congo

Angola + Zambia + Zimbabwe

Tanzania + Kenya + Uganda

Ghana + Ivory Coast + Burkina Faso

Nigeria + Cameroon

 

It just missin scouts for:

Senegal - Gambia - Guinea

Mali - Burkina Faso (to get more out of Ghana - Ivory Coast)

maybe South Africa - Mozambik

 

I can skip Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt and tbh South Africa, because of wages and reputation.

And the other countries are not really worth and I can scout with the national team.

Spicy game after a boring first half.

I subbed Silas in at half time and the team was a different one.

Three times...Silas crosses (different ones) to Bakambu!

We are in the final!

 

...and the final will be...Guinea vs DR Congo!

Ty.

Apparently we got already a nice competitive team for Africa.

We got a nice reputation and WR boost.

The next AFCON is 2025, hopefully we can be a top 4 team again.

So maybe if the World Cup 2026 arrives, players like AWB or Nkunku could switch sides.

First game after the AFCON we play Mozambique in a friendly.

Mpanzu decided to switch, so he gets the call up.

Also I invited our first regen Mboyo. I need to start early with the recruitment.

We start the season with the annual CL prelim games.

This time we drew Nouadhibou from Mauretania.

 

Our squad is still under contruction and we got some injuries.

Thats why Crescenciano played and scored his first goal for the club.

We made some nice money in the summer.

I pretty much accepted all incoming offers (after negotiations)

All players had only 12 months left on theirs deals, so this is perfect.

Player which featured heavily last season were Mutimbanyoka, Bayindula and Masangu.

With all the money coming in, we spent some.

The important transfers are Barry, Luwana, Outattara and Bitumazala. The rest are just some cheap backups.
