Togo and Tunisia drew 0-0 in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier played at the Stade de Kégué in Lomé on Tuesday evening.

The draw leaves Tunisia and Togo placed first and second respectively on Group A standings both on seven points - with the former having a better goal-difference.

The Sparrow Hawks saw most of the ball in the opening stages of the game - with the Eagles of Carthage happy to sit back and absorb Togo's pressure.

Tunisia defender Mohamed Amine Ben Amor did well to block Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor's goal-bound shot ten minutes into the game.

In the 26th minute, Mohamed Ali Moncer's attempt from range missed the target as the Eagles of Carthage looked to break the deadlock.

Ben Amor unleashed a shot from range five minutes later and his effort failed to trouble Koami N'Souhoho Mensah in Togo goal.

The Eagles of Carthage's first shot on target came on the stroke of half-time and Mensah saved Mohamed Wael Larbi's effort with ease.

The Sparrow Hawks had a few shots at Tunisia keeper Aymen Mathlouthi which could not beat the experienced goal-minder in the opening stages of the second-half.

In the 70th minute, the home side had their penalty appeal turned down. Togo were desperately searching for the opening goal.

With 13 minutes left on the clock, Tunisia head coach Henryk Kasperczak pulled out midfielder Larbi for a defender Maher Hannachi

Ultimately, the match ended in a 0-0 stalemate with two teams sharing the spoils on the night.
