Kenya, D. R. Congo play out a 1-1 draw in AFCON warm-up match

The Kenya national football team, Harambee Stars, played out a 1-1 draw with the Democratic Republic of Congo in their final pre-AFCON friendly match played in Madrid on Saturday. [TAKE VO] Michael Olunga put Kenya on the front foot in the 25th minute from a swift counter-attack that had seen Ayub Timbe do the spadework on the left flank. Stars would have gone behind at the start of the second half when Cedric Bakambu stepped up to take a penalty he had been awarded after Patrick Matasi brought him down in the box. Matasi then stepped up to save the spot kick, keeping Kenya in the match. In the 86th minute, DRC’s Arthur Masuaku’s low effort from a free kick slipped through Patrick Matasi’s fingertips, and into the net. Both sides would then fail to find a winner, the match ending 1-1.
