Congo 2-4 DR Congo: Incredible comeback sends Democratic Republic through

Dieumerci Mbokani scored twice as Democratic Republic of Congo produced a remarkable fightback to beat neighbours Congo 4-2 and reach the Africa Cup of Nations semi-finals.

DR Congo looked set to bow out when Ferebory Dore and Thievy Bifouma put Congo in command of Saturday's quarter-final at Estadio de Bata, but Florent Ibenge's men responded from two down with a stunning comeback.

Mbokani pulled a goal back and Jeremy Bokila made up for wasting several chances by equalising, before Joel Kimwaki came off the bench to head DR Congo in front for the first time eight minutes from the end.

The lively Mbokani then added a fourth goal to seal the victory, as DR Congo won for the first time in the tournament to move into the last four.
