Harambee Stars moved top of Group F after holding hosts Ethiopia to a barren draw at the Bahir Dar Stadium on Wednesday.

The outcome means Stars have now amassed four points having beaten Ghana last month and a win in the return leg will increase their chances of making it to the Afcon finals for the first time since 2004.

Stars withstood a tough second half surge by the home side pushed on by a full-to-capacity stadium to pick up the points that pushes them closer to Cameroon. Caf is yet to decide whether or not results picked by teams against Sierra Leone – who are serving a Fifa ban – will stand in the road to qualification.

Sierra Leone were scheduled to play Ghana on Thursday but the match was called off. Here is how Kenyans reacted after the 0-0 draw away in Ethiopia.
