Sports Feature Sports Shepolopolo held away by Kenya in 2020 Olympic Qualifier

Shepolopolo on Friday afternoon held Kenya to a 2-2 away draw in a 2020 Tokyo Olympics penultimate stage, first leg match played at Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi.

Grace Chanda and Rachael Kundananji scored for Zambia in this first leg, fourth round match.

Martha Tembo own goal cancelled out Chanda’s opener before Corazone Aquino gave the Harambee Starlets the lead in the second half only for Rachael Kundananji to equaliser on restart.

The winner on aggregate will face Cameroon or Cote d’Ivoire in the final round, whose victors will directly qualify for next year’s Olympics in Japan, while the loser will meet up with Chile in the inter-confederation playoffs.
