Sudan 0-0 Guinea-Bissau: Pele penalty saved in Group D stalemate

The
spoils
were
shared
following
a
generally
low-key
Group
D
encounter
that
burst
into
life
towards
the
end
at
Stade
Omnisport
de
Garoua.

Chances
were
few
and
far
between
during
the
first
half.
The
best
opportunity
saw
Joseph
Mendes’
16th-minute
header
hit
the
post
for
Guinea-Bissau,
who
were
seeking
their
first
victory
in
three
appearances
at
the
tournament.

Meanwhile,
in
their
first
appearance
for
a
decade,
1970
champions
Sudan
were
aiming
to
record
only
their
second
win
in
14
matches
since
lifting
the
trophy
52
years
ago.

Guinea-Bissau
were
presented
with
a
great
chance
to
take
all
three
points
when
Ali
Aboeshren
clattered
into
Steve
Ambri
11
minutes
from
time.

But
the
goalkeeper
atoned
for
his
error,
guessing
correctly
to
deny
Pele
before
Frederic
Mendy’s
rebound
crashed
against
the
crossbar.

Mendy
then
had
a
shot
cleared
off
the
line
as
the
Djurtus
turned
up
the
pressure,
but
their
opponents
held
out
for
a
first
clean
sheet
at
the
tournament
since
their
1970
final
triumph.
