Mali recover to hold DR Congo and qualify

- +

Mali recovered from conceding an early goal to draw 1-1 against the Democratic Republic of Congo Monday and book an Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final date with hosts South Africa. 

Mali's forward Mahamadou Samassa (L) vies with DR Congo's forward Alain Kaluyituka during the Democratic Republic of Congo vs Mali Africa Cup of Nations 2013 group B football match at Moses Mahiba Stadium in Durban on January 28, 2013. Ghana clinched top place in Group B with a 3-0 victory over Niger Monday while Mali held the Democratic Republic to a 1-1 draw and finished runners-up.

Dieumerci Mbokani converted an early penalty as the Congolese made a dream start only for Mahamadou Samassa to level later in the first quarter and the match petered out into a tame draw.
