DR Congo thrash Equatorial Guinea
DR Congo have all but sealed their place at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations after a 4-0 success in the first leg of their final round qualifier against Equatorial Guinea in Kinshasa on Sunday.
The win was achieved via a hat-trick from Dieumerci Mbokani, while Deo Kanda got the other goal.
It was a frustrating first half for Claude Le Roy’s side, who dominated proceedings but could not find the breakthrough.
That finally emerged when Jean Kasusula provided an inch-perfect cross for Mbokani to head home.
Kanda’s goal was a great individual effort as he burst into the box, beat two defenders and fired past the goalkeeper.
Mbokani got his second when he knocked home the rebound after Issama Mpeko’s shot had been saved, while his hat-trick came via an assist from Zola Matumona.
