The Chan second games of Group D will kick off in Agadir with Congo Brazzaville hoping to continue their fairytale run

Congo will be hoping to continue their fairytale run in the 2018 African Nations Championship when they take on Burkina Faso in the second game of Group D in Agadir on Saturday.

After eliminating title holders and neighbours DR Congo in the qualifiers, they shocked Cameroon 1-0 on Tuesday to top the log, after Burkina Faso and Angola settled for a goalless stalemate in the other game.

A victory for the Red Devils will confirm their place in the quarterfinals with a game to spare.

Cameroon coach Rigobert Song, on the other hand, will hope to have a change in fortunes when the Indomitable Lions take on Angola on Saturday as well. Anything aside victory would mean elimination.

Angola were wasteful in their opening game which resulted in the stalemate but Afonso Fofo hopes his coach hands him another opportunity to amend the missed chances.

"Things did go as planned. Several chances did not go in but I hope we can have another opportunity and make it count this time around," Fofo said.

"We need the points and will work very hard to achieve it. It's an open game so we'll do our best."
