Mauritania 0-0 Angola | Match Review | AFCON 2019

Mauritania claimed their first ever point at the Africa Cup of Nations after grinding out a 0-0 draw against Angola in a game that leaves both sides hopeful of progressing from Group E.

The Lions of Chinguetti might have picked up their maiden victory at the competition had Adama Ba buried a golden opportunity to score after an hour of a contest that saw Corentin Martins’ men grow in confidence as it unfolded.

Mauritania went into the game still smarting from a 4-1 drubbing by Mali and their determination to run a tighter ship at the back paid off as they kept Angola’s talented front four at bay, although they breathed a sigh of relief when Wilson Eduardo misfired with the goal at his mercy and a late Geraldo strike was correctly ruled out for offside.

The result leaves Angola with two points from two games and a strong chance of qualifying from Group E if they can get a result from their final game against Mali.

Meanwhile, Mauritania will need another gritty performance as they attempt to get something from their clash with Group E favourites Tunisia.
