AFCON 2019: Madagascar 2 DR Congo 2 (aet, 4-2 on penalties)
Madagascar’s dream debut at the Africa Cup of Nations continued with a penalty shoot-out victory over Democratic Republic of Congo in Sunday’s last-16 tie following a dramatic 2-2 draw in Alexandria.
In a thriller, Madagascar took a surprise lead through Ibrahim Amada’s superb 20-yard strike before Cedric Bakambu equalised with a header.
Faneva Andriatsima put the underdogs 2-1 in front with 13 minutes to play.
However, Chancel Mbemba’s 90th-minute equaliser forced extra-time.
Both teams failed to find the net again during extra time and Tisserand and Bolasie both missed from the spot, Madagascar in contrast scoring all four of their attempts from the spot to set up a quarter-final clash against either Ghana or Tunisia.
