Group C stays wide open
The Togo team
Togo's Hawks are yet to score
DR Congo 0-0 Togo

A 0-0 draw in Sikasso means it is still a mystery as to who will join Cameroon as the Group C qualifier for the quarter-finals.

It was a dull encounter but with few chances which could have changed the score line.

Togo's Ghanaian-born midfielder Eric Akoto said that the Hawks played a poor game.

"I am not happy with our performance today, it didn't go according to how we planned," he said.

But he was optimistic for Togo's future.

"Despite this draw, I am confident we will be ready to face Cameroon in the final group match."

The Congolese had the larger share of the few chances on offer - England-based striker Limana Lua Lua had only the keeper to beat in the 83rd minute.

But he fired off-target after Togo's impressive keeper, Kossi Agassa, had narrowed the goal angle.

In the 75th minute, a dangerous Togolese counter attack led by Abdelkader Coubadja-Toure was cut out by the Congolese defence just as Kossi Noutsoudje was about to blast home from outside the box.

Togo's best chance was earlier in the first-half when Kossi again shot wide from a similar counter.

There were a couple of half chances on either side which were not converted because of poor headers and also good goalkeeping.
