Angola and Uganda drew 0-0 in a delayed 2010 World Cup and Africa Cup of Nations qualifier played on Monday.

There were very few chances created in a dull game.

The result leaves Group Three wide open, with Benin top on nine points, followed by Angola and Uganda with seven points each.

The game at Luanda's Coqueiros Stadium was postponed because the referees' flight was late.

Benin ended Niger's dreams of reaching the second phase of the qualifiers after a 2-0 win over the visitors on Sunday.

The Squirrels dominated the game in Cotonou but had to until the 45th minute for Jocelyn Ahoueya to put them in the lead.

Defender Karim Oumarou inadvertently put the ball in his own net ten minutes after the break to seal the victory for Benin.

The defeat means Niger have no chance of advancing to the second group stage, as they are yet to gain a point with only two matches remaining.
