DR Congo beat Egypt 8-7 in a tense  penalty shootout to book their place in the quarter-finals and to silence the African football powerhouse.

This effectively means that African football legend Mohammed Salah will have to wait yet again to lift the continental soccer trophy.

Goalkeeper Lionel Mpasi, 29, who plays for Rodez AF in Ligue 2, the second tier in France, didn’t save a single penalty.

Then again, he didn’t have to.

He watched opposite number Gabaski crash his kick against the bar and kept his cool to send the Democratic Republic of Congo into the quarter-finals.

Now he’s being hoisted on the shoulders of his team-mates. What a hero. But spare a thought for poor Gabaski too.

Egypt, seven-time winners are on their way home after a 1-1 draw after extra time and an 8-7 win on penalties for the Congolese.

The injured Mohamed Salah watched from England and his wait for an AFCON will go on.

DR Congo now go on to meet Guinea in the quarterfinals on Friday.
