AFCON: Cameroon, Ghana Headlines Day Of Draw Fiesta

Cameroon and Ghana, two of the most successful teams in Africa Cup of Nations history with nine titles between them, cancelled each other out in a forgettable 0-0 draw on a day of three stalemates.

Ghana nearly snatched the points in the 88th minute when Kwabena Owusu intercepted a dreadful Jean Armel Kana Biyik pass, charged forward and fired a ferocious shot against the bar.

Angola and Mauritania drew 0-0 in Group E, leaving both sides facing a battle to advance to the knockout stages. It was a second draw for Angola, while Mauritania, making their tournament debut, picked up their first point.

Benin and Guinea Bissau completed a hat-trick of goalless draws with a stalemate that left both teams waiting for their first-ever win at the competition. The teams rarely looked like breaking the sequence of blanks in a scrappy match short of clear chances.
