Niger secured her first ever Nations Cup point


Niger earned their first point at the finals of the Africa Cup of Nations after holding DR Congo to a draw.

Both sides wasted chances in a low-quality game of poor finishing, although Niger's Modibo Sidibe was unlucky to see his shot hit the post, reports the BBC.

In contrast, Dieumerci Mbokani missed two gilt-edged chances, even if credit must go to keeper Daouda Kassaly for making smart saves on both occasions.

Youssouf Mulumbu also stroked wide from 12 yards as both sides struggled.
