Brazzaville - Congo cut three players from their preliminary squad as they announced their final 23-man selection for the African Nations Cup on Thursday.

The young Belgian-based pair of Scott Bitsindou and Jordan Massengo were left out by coach Claude Le Roy, while Bastia midfielder Christopher Maboulou failed to turn up for a pre-tournament training camp in Senegal, the Congolese Football Federation said.

Congo are competing at the Nations Cup finals for the first time since 2000 and play in the tournament's opening fixture against hosts Equatorial Guinea on Jan. 17 in Bata.

They also play against Burkina Faso and Gabon in Group A.
