Live updates: 

90+6' - Full-Time: Zambia 1-1 Kenya

90' - Four minutes added

87' - GOAL! Kalaba finds the back of the net to level matters on the day.  Superb first time, left-footed shot by the midfielder who has been at times the only one playing for Chipolopolo this afternoon.

83' - Corner-kick for Kenya as we enter the final few minutes of the clash. Zambia struggling in their attempt to break down the Harambee Stars.

75' - Into the final 15 minutes of the game and Kenya still hold a 1-0 lead in Ndola.

67' - CHANCE! Sinkala directs his effort wide with the goal at his mercy! Great chance at the back post squandered by the home side.

64' - GOAL! Against the run of play Ayub Timbe Masika opens the scoring; chipping the goalkeeper from an acute angle.

63' - Offside flag stays down, but Kalengo's first touch lets him down and it is an easy take for Oluoch.

60' - Hour played in Ndola with neither side able to challenge the goalkeeper just yet.

55' - Zambia unsuccessful in their attempts to exploit Kenya down the flanks with their crosses into the area lacking in quality. Meanwhile, Mayeko is booked for a silly foul on Kalaba.

49' - Kenya goalkeeper Oluoch takes a huge risk, deciding to side-step an onrushing Zambian player instead of just clearing from danger. Lucky for him it his decision pays off this time; the coach won't be too happy though.

46' - Second-half has kicked off

45+1' - Half-Time: Zambia 0-0 Kenya

45' - One minute added

39' - Odhiamb goes into the referee's book - Yellow Card

38' - Kalaba has been all action - the TP Mazembe midfielder sends his free-kick inches wide.

30' - Half-hour played in Ndola and we are yet to see a goal - yet to see any goal mouth action in essence to be frank.

24' - Kalaba bursts into the area before flashing his attempt wide of goal.

22' - Wanyama tries to spark his team into life, but his final pass is to heavy and the ball rolls out for a goal-kick. No really urgency from either side just yet.

16' - Back pass almost falls to Kalengo, but the Zambian forward just a tad slow to react as Oluoch rushes off his line to gather.

11' - Corner-kick for Kenya comes to nothing as well. Positive start by both teams, who are only playing for pride this afternoon.

8' - Chance for Zambia from a corner-kick following good play from Kalaba down the right flank, the resulting set-piece though is overcooked and Kenya clear.

5' - No fewer than seven Zesco United players involved from the onset in today's game. Zesco will play Mamelodi Sundowns in the semifinals of the CAF Champions League.

3' - SHOT! Kalaba tries his luck from range, but it is an easy take for Oluoch who stars in goal for the Harambee Stars.

1' - Kick-off
