DRC Pummel Libya 4-0


Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) brushed aside Libya 4-0 in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier which was played yesterday evening in Kinshasa. It took only six minutes for Dieumerci Mbokani to fire DRC into the lead with a left-footed finish with Yannick Bolasie grabbing an assist.

Jonathan Bolingi doubled DRC’s lead when he scored with a left-footed effort deep inside the Libyan box and the home side were leading 2-0 at half-time.

The Leopards of DRC continued their dominance in the second-half they went on to score twice against the Mediterranean Knights.

In the 56th minute, tricky midfielder Mpeko Issama set-up centre forward Mbokani who made it 3-0 to the Leopards with a decent finish. While Ndombe Mubele sealed DRC’s 4-0 victory when fired past a hapless Khaled Warfali in the Libya goal in the 69th minute.
