DR Congo Claim AFCON Bronze

DR Congo Claim AFCON Bronze

African Cup of Nations hosts Equatorial Guinea ended their tournament on a low note as they lost the third-place playoff 4-2 on penalties after drawing 0-0 with Democratic Republic of Congo on Saturday.

Javier Balboa and Raul Fabiani both missed with poor spot kicks, while all four DR Congo penalty takers found the net, with Cedric Mongongu firing home the decisive kick.

Although supporters largely stayed away from the playoff after the fan violence that marked Equatorial Guinea’s semifinal defeat to Ghana on Thursday, those in attendance created a fitting atmosphere for the hosts’ final match.

DR Congo and Equatorial Guinea were beaten by Ivory Coast and Ghana respectively in the semifinals, that pair will meet this evening in Bata in the final.
