The German saw a video of a training session of the DR Congo’s O20 team. They were forced to prepare on the street for the World Cup qualifier against Cameroon. While they were trying to exercise, a van drove by.
A little later it turned out that the women had also had to sleep outside. They had been evicted from their hotel because the Congolese Football Association had not paid the bill. “You start to wonder where the FIFA money for the promotion of women’s football has gone,” said Baer-Hoffmann.
