Kalombo N'Kongolo (born 17 July 1961 died 10 March 1993) was a Congolese footballer who played as a central defender.

Blessed with a powerful physique, N'Kongolo spent most of his professional career in Portugal, where he arrived at the age of 26, signing for modest Sporting Clube de Espinho, by then in the top division. His solid performances attracted the attention of national powerhouse F.C. Porto.

During his sole season at Porto, N'Kongolo appeared in 17 matches 16 starts as his team finished second to S.L. Benfica. He returned to Espinho for three more seasons, with the Tigers now in the second level. On 10 March 1993, the now Atlético Clube de Portugal player died from a brain embolism; he was only 31 years old.
