Rwanda National team yet again failed to register their first win in Group A when they drew 0-0 against Libya in the third game on Thursday at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos.

The Amavubi of Rwanda came to this encounter under pressure to claim a win after losing their first two opening matches.

Following the dull draw, coach Antoine Hey’s side remains rooted at the bottom with one point on the log table, they have conceded five goals and scored once.

In their next match, the 2016 African Nations Championships hosts will now face Tanzania on Saturday and are mathematically out of the race to reach the knockout stages.

The first half of the third group encounter failed to produce clear cut scoring chances as they both headed to the tunnel deadlocked at 0-0.

Emerging from the tunnel, coach Amr El-Mrimi saw his side improving in attack as they probed for an early for the lead.

However, they lacked a killer instinct in the final third despite statistics showing they had enjoyed the ball possession on 54% compared to 46 of Rwanda.

Although Rwanda committed 15 fouls in the match, the Mediterranean Knights could not capitalise on the set pieces and the contest ended at 0-0.

Having drawn three matches in the group, the North Africans have as many points at the third spot and are also out of the race to qualify for the semi-finals.

However, their last match in the group will be against the on-form Zanzibar on Monday as they will want to bag their first win.
