Congo 2    – 1    Burkina Faso

Bifouma Koulossa 51'     Bancé 86'

Ondama 87'

In a testament to their form all through the competition Congo finally qualified for the quarter-finals of the  Africa Cup of Nations, the last time they proceed to the Q/finals stage was in South Africa 1992 .

Congo needed only a point to proceed  to quarter finals but goals from Bifouma Koulossa and Ondama in the 51' & 87 'min was good enough to claim all the 3pts against Burkina Faso. A point was all Burkina Faso needed to advance to the quarter finals, and everything was working to the script when  Bancé 86' goal equalised for the Burkinabe, the Burkinabe jubilation was however cut short when Ondama restored the lead for Congo only a minute after the Burkinabe equalised to send Burkina Faso out of the tournament.

With the victory Claude LeRoy had qualified five different nations in Africa to seven quarter- finals in eight attempts.
