Senegal reached the quarterfinals on their World Cup debut in 2002, while the hugely-talented DRC are yet to qualify for the global football showpiece event.

“I can see some different names emerging at the end of the qualifiers. I think Senegal are very strong and another of my former teams, Congo DR, will also have a chance,” Le Roy told FIFA.com ahead of Friday’s draw for the qualifying tournament for the World Cup in Russia.

“The draw is very important. You can get a good draw, which makes the road to Russia possible, or you can get a bad draw that makes it very difficult.”

His current team Togo have already been eliminated from the competition.
