Angola and Tanzania draw a blank

It was a blank night in COSAFA Castle Cup Group A as Angola and Tanzania played to a goalless draw on Tuesday.
The day's action started with Malawi's clash against Mauritius, which also proved a fruitless encounter as the teams remained unmoved in the group.
The opening quarter of the match proved a cagey affair with chances few and far between as neither goalkeeper went properly tested in the opening 23 minutes.
The referee would eventually bring the first-half to a close with fans from both countries wondering where, and if, the breakthrough would come.
The restart brought with it a new impetus and Banda finally managed the first real chance of the game on 54 minutes, but he saw his shot turned away by Gerson Barros.
Mao then looked to work something for the Tanzanians but failed to keep his shot on target as he rifled one behind as the match eventually ended the same as it began.
Angola: Barros, Lunguinha, Natael, Masunguna, Amaro, Nelson, Dudu Leite, Herenílson, Paty, Caporal, Wilson
Tanzania: Manula, Kamagi, Banda, Nyoni, Mbonde, Mao, Maguri, Msuva, Ramadhani, Said
