CHAN 2016: DR Congo qualify for final….

DR Congo coach Florent Ibenge

DR Congo qualified for the final of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) by beating Guinea 5-4 on penalties. After an entertaining goalless 90 minutes Jonathan Bolingi scored what he thought was the winner in the first period of extra-time. But Guinea’s Ibrahima Sory Sankhon made it 1-1 in the final seconds of the game to send the tie to penalties.┬áIn the shootout Congo’s Ley Matampi saved from Mohamed Youla to send Florent Ibenge’s side to the final. The victory secures DR Congo’s place in Sunday’s final to decide the winners of CHAN 2016. They will face either Mali or Ivory Coast, who meet in Thursday’s semi-final.
