Viola NANKYA

The top of the table clash of group B has ended in a very closely contested affair at the Stade Omnisports de Bafoussam.

The two teams were aspiring to seal.a place in the quarter finals but none of them managed to find a separator.

Two Liverpool FC stars Sadio Mane and Nabir Keita were the Center of attraction for the highly anticipating spectators.

The two sides were on the back of identical 1-0 victories in their opening matches. Senegal edged Zimbabwe and Guinea got the best of Malawi on matchday I.

Despite the pre match aura and hype, mone of the sides was willing to play with handbrake off and the match ended square at 90 minutes.

Senegal’s best opportunity fell on the head Cheikhou Kouyate who failed to connect well with a Bouna Sarr free kick.

Bpuna Sarr himself should have given Senegal the nod but his shot off a Sadio Mane pass went wide later on.

On matchday III, Guinea will travel to Yaounde for their tie with Zimbabwe, whereas Senegal will stay in Bafoussam for their final group match against Malawi.
