The Harambee Stars of Kenya drew 0-0 with Ethiopia in their 3rd game of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers.
The result saw Stars inch closer to a return to continental football as they are now top of Pool ‘F’ with four points.
With the pool reduced to three teams following Sierra Leone’s suspension by Fifa for government interference, the draw means Sebastien Migne’s charges are now three points away from sealing a place in next year’s continental finals set for Cameroon.
Ghana and Sierra Leone’s clash was postponed after the latter failed to appeal FIFA’s suspension.
It is still unclear whether FIFA will award Ghana all three points or not.
