The win meant the  The Red Devils of Congo shot to the top of Group A of the AFCON qualifiers as  Sudan went to bottom of the group so far conceding 5 goals in two matches after the home 3-0 loss to South Africa who drew 0-0 with Nigeria. 

Bulgaria based midfielder Fode Dore broke the deadlock for Congo after just four minutes before Prince Oniangue who also scored against Nigeria sealing the all imporant win in stoppage time to pile more misery on Sudan who have found the going tough in the qualifiers that have equally stunned coach Mohamed Mazda.

Sudan next face Nigeria in October in what will be a do or die match for them having lost 2 in 2 matches both home and away whereas Congo now have six points after they stunned African champions Nigeria 3-2 in Calabar at the weekend.

Congo will  welcome Bafana to Pointe Noire on October 11 and then  four days later, they will be in South Africa.
