Férébory Doré led Congo to a 4-2 away victory over Guinea Bissau on Saturday, in their second Group E outing of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

A brace from the Angers striker on either side of half-time proved enough to see off the ‘Wild Dogs’, who, however, managed to pull two goals back in the second half.

Doré put the visitors ahead just before the half-a-hour mark, following a good combination with Granada star Thievy Bifouma.

The duo was again in action four minutes later, to send the Red Devils with a two-goal lead into the break.

‘Fodé’ Doré completed his hat-trick in the 62nd minute, but 22-year-old midfielder Zezinho managed to narrow the gap for Guinea Bissau a minute later.

However, the Congolese hitman restored their three-goal advantage in the 66th minute, thanks again to an assist from Bifouma, and Zezinho’s brace ten minutes from time was too little too late for the locals.

The win sends the Congolese top of Group E on 4 points, three points clear of Kenya and Zambia who will be battling each other in Nairobi on Sunday.
