MONROVIA, LIBERIA-Veteran striker Dieumerci Mbo Kani has been recalled to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DR Congo) squad for their decisive 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at home to Liberia on 24 March.

The former Norwich City, Hull City and Monaco player is included in a 24-man squad chosen by Leopards coach Florent Ibenge.

DR Congo needs a victory in Kinshasa in the Group ‘G’ match to stand any chance of qualifying for this year's finals in Egypt.

Group leaders Zimbabwe are on 8 points followed by Liberia on 7, DR Congo have 6 and Congo Brazzaville 5.

Mbokani, 33, briefly quit international football in April 2016 after the DR Congo Federation threatened to ban him for missing two 2017 Nations Cup qualifiers.

But he resumed his career with the Leopards later that same year and went on to play at the 2017 Nations Cup in Gabon, which was the last time he wore his national shirt.
