Since DR Congo have been sponsored by O'Neills, we've adopted them as our African team of choice here at Balls.ie, so we were delighted to see the lads pick up a vital 3-2 win away to Burundi in their 2018 World Cup qualifier.
Yannick Bolasie is without a doubt the star attraction for that DR Congo side, and sure enough he scored and won man of the match for his performance today:

Scoring against Burundi may not sound like the greatest achievement for a Premier League player, but when you see the state of the pitch they played on, you'll perhaps understand his happiness, just look at this:

There's more water than playing surface, it must be monsoon season in Burundi.
Crystal Palace's star winger is also vlogging his experience at the World Cup qualifiers in Africa, which is quite cool:
Best of luck to Yannick and the boys from DR Congo, repping O'Neills wherever they go in Africa.
