Kenya’s hopes to progress to the Africa Cup of Nations were dashed on Tuesday night after defending champions, Cameroon, drew blanks and saved Benin.
Benin came into the game sitting bottom of the third best-placed teams log with only two points but the 0-0 draw pushed them above Kenya and South Africa who have the same points but a poor goal difference.
However, the South Africans advanced as Kenya is sent packing.
In the other match, Angola, who were returning after missing two editions, failed to progress after falling 1-0 to Tunisia.
Tuesday matches summed up the group stages and confirmed the 16 teams for the next round.
They are: Egypt, Uganda and DR Congo for group A; Madagascar, Nigeria and Guinea from B; Algeria and Senegal from C; Morocco, Ivory Coast and South Africa in D; Mali and Tunisia from E; and, finally, Ghana, Cameroon and Benin from D.
The round of 16 start on Friday 25th June.
