Tunisia, Angola through

TUNISIA and Angola both qualified for the African Nations Cup quarter-finals after playing out a tame 0-0 draw in their final Group D game yesterday.

The two teams finished with five points from three games in the group, Tunisia

taking top place on goals scored.

With a stalemate suiting both sides, there were precious few chances in a match which was often played at walking pace.

A hot, breathless evening also contributed to one of the worst games of the tournament so far.

Senegal and South Africa were eliminated after a 1-1 draw in their last Group D match in Kumasi yesterday.

Both teams needed a win to revive slim hopes of reaching the last eight but finished behind Tunisia and Angola in the standings.

Elrio van Heerden opened the scoring for South Africa inside the first quarter of an hour, finishing off a swift passing move unmarked at the back post.

Henri Camara equalised for Senegal eight minutes before halftime after a defensive slip by South Africa captain Aaron Mokoena allowed him through on goal. —Reuters.
