Kenya shatters Uganda dreams of Africa cup qualification

Kenya on Saturday drew 0-0 with hosts Uganda in their final Group J qualifier match of the Africa Cup of Nations to bow out of contention for the tournament.

The hosts begun impressively and put Kenya in a tight corner but Kenya soon recovered and threatened in the second-half.

Angola leapfrogged misfiring Uganda at the top of Group J when winning 2-0 in Guinea-Bissau to qualify for January’s finals.

Manucho opened the scoring in the first-half, before Mateus Galiano doubled the lead in the second period.

Uganda could have taken the ticket with a win at home to Kenya, but they were held to a 0-0 draw.

Against the odds

Angola qualified against the odds, winning their last two games while Uganda took just a point in that time.





e Palancas Negras finished the group with 12 points, one more than Uganda.

Kenya finished on eight points, with Guinea Bissau bringing up the rear with just three.

Zambia qualified from Group B despite being held to a 0-0 draw by Libya in Chingola.

The Chipolopolo needed just a point to be certain of qualification, while their North African rivals needed victory to go through.

There was plenty of expectation build-up to the Group B match but in the end, the tie was a drab affair.
