Jeremy Bokila netted a second-half brace as DR Congo claimed a remarkable 4-2 comeback victory over Congo to reach the semi-finals of the African Nations Cup at Estadio de Bata on Saturday.

Congo took a 2-0 lead thanks to goals after the break from Ferebory Dore and Koulossa Thievy before Dieumerci Mbokani pulled one back and Bolika's double sandwiched Joel Kimwaki's header to complete the comeback.

The win sees the Leopards reach the semi-finals of the competition for the first time since 1998, where they will play Ivory Coast or Algeria.
