Sadio Mane hit the back of the net twice as Teranga Lions of Senegal cruised to the top of Group over Kenya and booked their place in the last 16.
Meanwhile, the Liverpool forward had a first-half penalty saved by Kenya keeper, Patrick Matasi, before adding to Ismaila Sarr’s volley with a placed effort.
Mane then converted a second spot-kick after Philemon Otieno was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Sarr late on.
Kenya could still qualify as one of the best four third-placed teams, depending on the results in the final games in Group E and F.
However, Monday’s result means DR Congo definitely qualify from Group A with a superior goal difference.
The Teranga Lions will now face Uganda in the last 16 on 5 July.
