In June 1957, the Belgian club Union Saint-Gilloise went to Congo.
The team planned to play in : Léopoldville, Elisabethville, Bukavu, Usumbura, in Ruanda-Urundi and Stanleyville.
played in Léopoldville (Stade du Roi Baudouin) :
14/06 : Eurafrican XI - Union Saint-Gilloise 0-6 (Eurafrican team is a mix of African & European players)
16/06 : Congo Belge - Union Saint-Gilloise 2-4 (Only African players from Congo appeared in "Congo Belge" team)

Later, Union Saint-Gilloise played a triangular tournament in Elisabethville with Katanga and Mozambique :
20/06 : Union Saint-Gilloise - Katanga
22/06 : Mozambique - Katanga
23/06 : Union Saint-Gilloise - Mozambique
It seems that RUSG won both games. Scores are unknown.
I collect those information in a pdf document that I found on Union Saint-Gilloise website. If anyone wants to have this document (in French), just send a private message with your e-mail.
