DR Congo and Gabon completed the quarter-final line-up at the African Nations Championship after sealing first and second spots in Group D.

A 2-1 victory for DR Congo over Burundi saw them move up from third to seal the runners-up spot in the table, two points above The Swallows.

Gabon left it very late to book their place as they needed to come from behind to beat Mauritania 4-2.

The win took Gabon to seven points and put them through as group winners.

But it had looked as though Burundi were going to get a way with a defeat - and lacklustre performance - in their game with DR Congo as Mauritania closed in on a shock win over Gabon.

Gabon will play Libya and DR Congo face Ghana in Sunday's quarter-finals.
