(VON) Ghana’s Ayew brothers grabbed a goal each on Sunday for the Black Stars to beat DR Congo 2-1 and advance into the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) semi-finals.
Aston Villa’s Jordan Ayew opened scoring in the 62nd minute, curling the ball past Ley Matampi in the Leopards’ goal.
Paul-Jose M’Poku equalised for DR Congo with a sensational curling long-range effort from outside the penalty area.
