South Sudan’s defensive tactics paid dividends as they held on for a point.

After beating Djibouti 2-0 in their opening Group C game on Monday it puts South Sudan in line to qualify for the quarter-finals of the tournament.

2015 Cecafa standings after 2 matches:

Top two in each group and two best third-placed teams progress
Group A: Group B: Group C:
Tanzania 6 pts Kenya 4 pts Malawi 6 pts
Rwanda 3 Pts Burundi 4 pts South Sudan 4 pts
Ethiopia 3 pts Uganda 3 pts Sudan 1 pts
Somalia 0 pts Zanzibar 0 pts Djibouti 0 pts

The draw leaves Sudan in third place behind their neighbours with just a single point so far after they lost 2-1 to Malawi in their first match.

Guest team Malawi top the group and have qualified for the last eight after brushing aside Djibouti 3-0.

Yaboh Idriss Moussa missed several chances for Djibouti before Gerald Phiri converted a penalty for Malawi and John Banda and Chiukepo Msowoya secured the victory.

In the other games played on Wednesday defending champions Kenya and Burundi settled for a 1-1 all draw.

While hosts Ethiopia recovered from their loss in the opening match to Rwanda to beat Somalia 2-0 in front of a capacity crowd.
