Evening all, and welcome to Togo v DR Congo, a game which will decide who tops Group C.
TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations / Group Stage
Stade de Port-Gentil / 24.01.2017
So, that's us - thanks for your company, and we'll be back with the Group D deciders tomorrow evening. Bye!
Brilliant performance from Congo to win the group - they look a proper threat to win the thing as perhaps the best balanced and most cohesive side in the competition, even if they lack the stars present elsewhere. They celebrate well, while, elsewhere, Morocco have beaten Ivory Coast to send the hosts home.
Full-time: Togo 1-3 DR Congo
Matampi is down having hurt his leg, so there's a break while he recovers.
It just won't go in for Adebayor! A long hump finds Ayite, just outside the box and dead centre, so he slides right, and his captain does well to allow the bobble before lashing a low shot across Matampi - it beats him, but Lomalisa catches up with it and flays clear.
There shall be three added minutes; four in the other game.
Free-kick to Togo wide on the left, swung in towards Laba, but Bope is up to head behind and the ensuing corner comes to nothing.
Togo win a corner and there's some ruckus in the box between Ouro-Akoriko and Tisserand, which the referee squashes in short order.
So, it's looking like DRC v Egypt and Morocco v Ghana in the quarters - though that could easily change. Ghana are definitely through, and need a draw to win the group, while Egypt need a draw to qualify. That's bad news for Mali, who must beat Uganda and hope.
Bokila replaces Kabananga.
The way Congo have reacted to Togo scoring speaks volumes as to their confidence. It's true that they almost conceded again immediately afterwards, but subsequently they seized back control and are well worth their two-goal lead.
GOAL! Togo 1-3 DR Congo Two clever turns by Kbananga force a foul just outside the box, left edge of the D, and up steps Mpoko to spank a sidefooter against the underside of the bar and in! The spin sees it bouncing back out again, but it was plenty over the line and receives the celebration it deserves.
Change for Togo: Romao, a centreback, replaces Boukari; presumably Akakpo will move further forward.
Nice from Congo, Mbemba breaking through midfield again and finding Botaka, who snaps a first time diagonal pass for Bolingi, inside the box, left-hand side. He looks to open his body and curl a finish inside the far post, but Bope manages to block, though the ref awards a goalkick.
What on earth was Claude Le Roy thinking, waiting so long to make a change?
Kabananga finds Mbemba, who shuffles and feints then burns past Djene, only to send a cross-shot wide.
DRC are stepping it up again, Mbemba just unable to catch up with a long through-ball and Botaka then forcing a corner. It comes to nowt, and then Ayite breaks, feeding Labal, who's just offside. Suddenly, this is a game.
Oh my! A collision outside the box spirits the ball into Adebayor's path, and he does very well to sidestep away from Tisserand, opening up a shooting lane, but then panels straight at Matampi. Huge oversight, that.
GOAL! Togo 1-2 DR Congo (Laba) Well well well! Djene crosses from the left and the ball somehow lands art the feet of Adebayor, and with men now in the box, lays right for Boukari. He then squares for Laba who, with his first touch, calmly passes low into the net at the near post, wrongfooting the keeper! Game on!
Senegal are legitimate favourites for the trophy, but 4/1 on DRC looks worth a look.
