However the game took a turn after the second half when the DRC’s first goal came courtesy of Neeskens Kebano, 54 minutes into the game, 2 minutes later, Yannick Bolasie’s provided a second goal providing the DRC with the win. This victory gave the DRC a total of six points, just like their Tunisian counterparts. However, due to their higher-ranking goal difference, the DRC beat out Tunisia to hold the top spot on Group A.
