AFCON: Egypt Joins Nigeria in Round Of 16 After Defeat Of DR Congo

Egypt sealed their passage to the last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations thanks to a straightforward 2-0 win over the Democratic Republic of Congo, as Mohamed Salah got off the mark in the competition.

Although DR Congo had their moments and certainly threatened the tournament hosts, Javier Aguirre’s side were well worth the win that sends them through and leaves the Congolese in danger of an early exit.

Marcel Tisserand and Jonathan Bolingi hit the frame of the goal for DR Congo either side of Ahmed Elmohamady’s opener in the first half, before Salah doubled the lead just before the break.

The Leopards looked the more threatening for much of the second period, though Egypt held firm to claim the victory, meaning the best DR Congo can hope for now is to qualify as one of the best third-placed sides.
