Mauritania hold Angola to goalless draw

by kenya-tribune

Mauritania and Angola played out to an entertaining 0-0 draw in a Group D encounter of the ongoing TotalEnergies African Nations Championship in Algeria at the Miloud Hadefi Stadium in Oran on Friday.

Both sides had chances to win the game with numerous chances created on both ends. The Angolans were probably hoping to go top of the standings with a victory but the Mauritanian side were equally determined.

The stalemate sees Mauritania attain their first point of the tournament in their opening clash while Angola register their second following their hard-fought 3-3 draw against Mali on Monday.

The group is wide open ahead of the final Group D match on Tuesday when Mali take on Mauritania in what will be a decider on who advances to the knockout stages of the competition.

Angola are now powerless to determine the fate of Group D and will have to wait for the final result between Mali and Mauritania on Tuesday evening.
