The Democratic Republic of Congo ended a 34 minute deadlock that ensued after the initial 90 minutes of playing, and edged out the Pharaohs of Egypt from the ongoing African Cup of Nations with 8-7 score line .

DRC  were the first to score through a strike by  Elia Meschack but the Pharaohs equalised in the 46th minute goal via a penalty kick by Mostafa Mohamed. The regular time of the pulsating match ended with a 1-1 score line.

As the game dragged into extra time, none of the teams was able to show supremacy.
