Botswana and Swaziland cancel each other out

Botswana and Swaziland shared the points after the played out a goalless stalemate in their Group B match at the Cosafa Cup in Zambia.

Botswana had the better of the first half, enjoying greater possession, but failed to turn that into chances.

Just after the break they went close through Jerome Ramatlhakwane, who sent an effort only inches wide.

That was the closest either side came to a goal as Swaziland came back into the game and nullified their opponents.

Botswana coach Stanley Tshoshane: "Both teams had a very good game. We started with the same system. We did not allow each other to play from the back. We played long balls from the goalkeepers. I'm disappointed with the result but a draw is a fair result."

Swaziland coach: Valerie Billen: "We tried to do more in the second half. But the result is a good reflection of the game."
