Zambia and Mali are both through to the quarter-finals of the African Nations Championship after they played out a goalless draw in Group D.

The local Chipolopolo side had already booked their passage before the game and Mali sealed their spot by claiming a point.

In the other match in the group Zimbabwe were denied a victory over Uganda by a 93rd-minute equaliser.

William Manondo opened the scoring only for Geofrey Serunkuma to level.

Uganda had needed to beat Zimbabwe and for Mali to lose to qualify for the next stage.
