AFCON 2015: DR Congo defeats Equatorial Guinea to win bronze medal

By  |  0 Comments

DR Congo finished their Africa Cup of Nations in third place, after they beat hosts Equatorial Guinea 4-2 on penalties on Saturday.

It was indeed a forgettable 90 minutes, with few chances created and no goals.

Equatorial Guinea were beaten 3-0 in their semi-final clash with Ghana – a game which was overshadowed by crowd trouble and has to be put on hold for over 30 minutes.

DR Congo gave Ivory Coast better competition in their own semi-final, before they eventually lost 3-1 to Herve Renard’s team.

Javier Balboa and Raul Fabiani missed for the home team, before Cedric Mongongu netted the decisive penalty for the Congolese.
