Chermiti: Had chances for Tunisia
Tunisia and Angola advanced to the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations following a 0-0 draw.
Both sides headed into the game knowing a point would guarantee qualification ahead of Senegal and South Africa.
And, in a game of few chances, Tunisia and Angola secured the necessary result to move into the knockout phase.
Amine Chermiti had several opportunities to give Tunisia the lead in the first half, testing Angola keeper Luis Lama on 17 minutes.
He headed wide when well placed on 20 minutes and nodded over the bar just before half-time after Lama had saved a long-range shot.
In the second period, Tunisia keeper Hamdi Kasraoui was called into action to beat away Maurito's fierce shot from the edge of the area.
As Group D winners, Tunisia will now meet Cameroon in the last eight, while Angola will tackle Egypt.
