Bushiri's DR Congo progress to Afcon quarter-finals

Rocky Bushiri won't be flying back to the capital just yet after Democratic Republic of Congo dramatically ended Egypt's Africa Cup of Nations hopes.

The Hibs defender was an unused substitute as his side prevailed in a gripping penalty shootout, with the winning spot-kick scored by goalkeeper Lionel Mpasi.

DR Congo will now meet Guinea in the quarter-finals on Friday evening, meaning Bushiri is incredibly unlikely to feature at Easter Road on Saturday when St Mirren travel to Leith.
