International call-ups for United pair

Written by Rory Mitchinson

United’s Chancel Mbemba has been called up to the Democratic Republic of Congo’s squad for the Leopards’ vital World Cup qualifier against Libya next month.

Florent Ibengé’s side trail Tunisia by three points in CAF’s Third Round Group A, having blown a two-goal lead against the Carthage Eagles in their last outing.

And, as a result of the ongoing conflict in Libya, it is in Tunisia where their next game will take place. The Leopards will almost certainly need to win their two remaining qualifiers to have any chance of making it to Russia next year, starting in Monastir next Saturday.

Elsewhere, midfielder Mikel Merino has been named in Spain Under-21s’ squad for La Rojita’s trip to Slovakia.

Albert Celades’ side won their opening European Under-21 Championship qualifier against Estonia earlier this month, Merino clocking up 90 minutes.
