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.
