The Red Devils of Congo shot to the top of Group A of the AFCON qualifiers after they beat Sudan 2-0 at the Stade Municipal in Pointe Noire on Wednesday.

Congo now have six points after they stunned African champions Nigeria 3-2 in Calabar at the weekend.

The other match in the group between South Africa and Nigeria will be played later Wednesday in Cape Town.

Bulgaria-based midfielder Fode Dore gave Congo the lead after four minutes.

Prince Oniangue, who scored in Nigeria on Saturday, made the game safe for Congo in stoppage time with a second goal.

Next month they will take on South Africa both at home and away.

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

Interestingly, Congo were instated in the qualifiers for Morocco 2015 only after Rwanda were disqualified for fielding an ineligible player in the previous round of the qualifying series.
