ISMAILIA – Benin’s long wait for a first win at the Africa Cup of Nations was extended on Saturday night by Guinea-Bissau following an attritional goalless draw in Ismailia, the tournament’s third in a row.
After a creditable 2-2 draw with Ghana in their first game in Egypt, Benin have now gone 11 matches without a victory in the competition, dating back to their debut in 2004.
Only Mozambique, with 12, have played more games in the competition without recording a win.
Guinea-Bissau, who appeared for the first time in this competition in 2017, picked up their first point in Group F as both sides remained in contention for a place in the last-16.
Holders Cameroon top the section on four points, with Benin and four-time champions Ghana level on two.
