AFCON 2023: DR Congo Force Morocco To 1-1 Draw

Morocco missed the opportunity to seal qualification to the round of 16 following a 1-1 draw with DR Congo in Group A of the AFCON 2023.

Silas Katompa Mvumpa came off the bench to help DR Congo earn a share of the spoils.

It was the Moroccans who took the lead when Achraf Hakimi headed home from the Hakim Ziyech corner on six minutes.

Cedric Bakambu had the chance to draw DR Congo level in the 41st minute but missed a penalty.

But the Congolese were rewarded for their perseverance when Silas tucked the ball into the net from fellow substitute Meschack Elia on 76 minutes.

Morocco move onto four points at the top of Group F following their 3-0 win over Tanzania in their tournament opener, while the DRC have two points after a 1-1 draw with Zambia.

Morocco will win the group by beating Zambia on Wednesday
