DR Congo qualified for the third African Nations Championship on Friday, after a 1-1 draw against Cameroon in the second leg round of qualifying phase. The game was held at Mazembe’s Kamalondo stadium in Lubumbashi.

The Congolese dominated the match from the start. The scorer in the first leg in Garoua, Mubele Ndombe (64’), missed twice to score (7 'and 11'), before hitting the corner that found Ebunga Nsimbi (31'), who scored the first goal for the Congolese. The score remained 1-0 until the break.

But 15 minutes after the break, Cameroon exploited a flaw in the Congolese defense and scored. The game ended 1-1. The DRC advances after winning 2-1 on aggregate.
