Tournament favorite Ivory Coast was held to a 0-0 draw by Burkina Faso in the first Group B game of the African Cup of Nations on Monday.

Ivory Coast, which hasn't won the biennial competition since 1992, wasted more than a dozen of chances at the Chiazi stadium.

Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso lead the three-team group with one point each.

Ghana, which was originally scheduled to play Togo later Monday, will enter the competition on Friday against Ivory Coast.

Togo left the competition following the death of two members of its delegation in an ambush last week before the tournament started.
