Cart driver nearly runs over DR Congo player Gabriel Zakuani

DR Congo's Gabriel Zakuani, right, vies with Congo midfielder Delvin Ndinga on Saturday.

Poor Gabriel Zakuani. The DR Congo player went down with an injury during his country's big win over rivals Congo on Saturday, so they called to the sideline for some treatment.

Big mistake.

When the cart came on the pitch to ferry off Zakuani, the not-so-cautious driver added insult to the defender's injury and game him a bump:

And although the Peterborough United player did have to be replaced thanks to the injury suffered beforehand, he was able to joke about his "traffic accident" later on...

A stunning comeback against Congo fired the Democratic Republic of Congo into the last four of the Africa Cup of Nations for the first time since 1988.

Jeremy Bokila netted a second-half brace as DR Congo claimed a remarkable 4-2 comeback victory over Congo to reach the semi-finals of the African Nations Cup at Estadio de Bata on Saturday.

Congo took a 2-0 lead thanks to goals after the break from Ferebory Dore and Koulossa Thievy before Dieumerci Mbokani pulled one back and Bolika's double sandwiched Joel Kimwaki's header to complete the comeback.

Football is DR Congo's focus before Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal

DR Congo qualified for the quarterfinals with a 1-1 draw in their final group game vs. Tunisia.

BATA, Equatorial Guinea -- Villa Celotti is an unusual team hotel. It is situated a five-minute walk from Bata's airport terminal and has the feel of a holiday camp, with small, prefabricated chalets sitting several rows deep, spreading back from a mediocre stretch of beach.

Level of play at African Nations Cup can improve, Yannick Bolasie says

Guinea are through to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations after the drawing of lots in Malabo.

BATA, Equatorial Guinea -- Yannick Bolasie is reveling in Democratic Republic of the Congo's African Nations Cup run but believes the tournament has a long way to go if it is to match the quality of football he faces back home.

The Crystal Palace winger debuted for DR Congo, his parents' homeland, in 2013 and has been critical to their qualification for the quarterfinals in Equatorial Guinea -- scoring a vital equaliser in their opening game against Zambia. But the 25-year-old says that the level...
