DR Congo extend Group Ten lead

DR Congo lead Group Ten on seven points

DR Congo extended their lead at the top of Group Ten when beating Ethiopia 2-0 in an outstanding Nations Cup qualifier on Sunday.

Goals from Mputu Mbungu and Portsmouth striker Lomano LuaLua sealed the win for the Leopards in Kinshasa.

The home side dominated the early exchanges and opened the scoring in the 38th minute after Mbungu took advantage of a defensive mix-up.

LuaLua sealed the victory from the spot after Mputi Mabi was fouled in the box, late in the game.

The England-based striker had only arrived on the morning of the match, having played in Portsmouth's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday.

The Group Ten clash, originally scheduled for March, was postponed due to the civil unrest in the capital at that time.

The win gives the Leopards seven points after three games in Group A, while Libya remain second with four points.
