DR Congo , Tunisia land in quarter finals

TunisiaTunisia and DR Congo both made it to the Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals after they drew in Bata.

A point apiece gave Tunisia top spot in Group B and DR Congo second place.

Tunisia spurned two excellent early chances before they struck on the half-hour, Ahmed Akaichi stretching to head in Yassine Chikhaoui’s deflected shot.

Wahbi Khazri should have made it 2-0 but blazed over, and DR Congo snatched their place in the last eight when Jeremy Bokila side-footed in.

However, Cape Verde and Zambia both bowed out of the African Cup of Nations after a game which at one point looked as though it would stop because of torrential rain.

Persistent showers fell through the first half and the rain became very heavy during half-time and in the early stages of the second half.

Puddles appeared on the pitch but play continued and the rain finally stopped.

Zambia’s Evans Kangwa missed a great chance late on while Antonio Varela earlier headed over at the other end.
