Cape Verde and DR Congo could not be separated as they played out a goalless draw in their Africa Cup of Nations Group B clash on Thursday.

Dias Vozinha had a nervy moment between the Cape Verde sticks in the sixth minute when a defensive header nearly caught him out of position, but he made his way back in time to avoid what would have been a humiliating moment.
 
Other than that early stutter, it was the Blue Sharks who looked more like scoring throughout the clash. They had a big chance in the 31st minute when a cross curled towards the back post but the headed effort was easily saved by Kidiaba.
 
Kuca caused problems for the Leopards defence shortly thereafter. The Estoril forward jinked down the left wing before cutting into the area and sending a strike on goal, only to see it blocked at the last moment.
 
After the break DR Congo had a rare chance as Mabwati gained possession on the left and sneaked inside to rifle a shot into the side netting with the goalkeeper beaten.
 
Kidiabi made a tremendous save in the 88th minute to ensure the sides shared the spoils as he kept out Heldon's smart strike on goal after some enterprising play from Cape Verde.
 
Ghana's Afcon game against Algeria will be televised live on SuperSport 4 on 23 January at 18h00.
