Rwanda and Libya, both eliminated from this year’s CECAFA played out a goalless draw in a dull Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup Group A match played at Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos County on Thursday. Libya needed a win to rise to second position on the log and the draw leaves them third after Kenya who sit second on four points.
Rwanda, winless in three games, remain bottom of the five team log with a game to go against Tanzania on Saturday. The two teams were playing in a dress rehearsal as they meet again next month in the group stages of the African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Rwanda coach Antoine Hey fielded his strong team, the same that played in the opening tie against Kenya’s Harambee Stars last Sunday.
