That was their one and only appearance at the FIFA event.
Zaire won the CAF Africa Cup of Nations in 1968 and 1974, though their best performance as DR Congo came in the 1998 finals in Burkina Faso when they ended third after being knocked out in the semifinals by South Africa. The Leopards were quarterfinalists in the 2002 and 2006 Nations Cup finals, though they failed to qualify for either the 2008 or 2010 editions.
