Bolasie Goal Helps DR Congo To Advance

16 November 2015

Yannick Bolasie's 77th minute equaliser secured DR Congo a place in the group phase of African qualification for the 2018 World Cup.

DR Congo were held to a 2-2 draw at home to neighbours Burundi, but won 5-4 on aggregate following their first leg away victory which ended 3-2. 

The home side were expecting an easy return match at their newly-refurbished Martyrs Stadium, but having taken the lead, Burundi got a goal back through striker Dieumerci Mbokani. 

Bolasie's 77th minute penalty put the Congolese back ahead, but Burundi ensured an anxious finish when they equalised towards the end of full-time with a spot kick of their own.
