I read a report that the Congo team vs Bahrain and Jordan (in 2009) was a youth team. Some conjecture that they may have been preparing towards the Francophone Games?

I read (in a Congo newspaper) that Congo forfeited the bronze medal because some Congo players were injured in the semi vs Cameroon.

Actually the author of your book probably wrote the article I read, since he was a journalist on that newspaper (La Semaine Africaine). Sadly he died in 2012 before he could finish his manuscript for the book, so perhaps the published version is unfinished.
