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.
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.
Into the final 15 minutes of the game and Kenya still hold a 1-0 lead in Ndola.
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.
Offside flag stays down, but Kalengo's first touch lets him down and it is an easy take for Oluoch.
Hour played in Ndola with neither side able to challenge the goalkeeper just yet.
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.
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.
Second-half has kicked off
Half-Time: Zambia 0-0 Kenya

Odhiamb goes into the referee's book - Yellow Card
Kalaba has been all action - the TP Mazembe midfielder sends his free-kick inches wide.
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.
Kalaba bursts into the area before flashing his attempt wide of goal.
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.
Back pass almost falls to Kalengo, but the Zambian forward just a tad slow to react as Oluoch rushes off his line to gather.
Corner-kick for Kenya comes to nothing as well. Positive start by both teams, who are only playing for pride this afternoon.
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.
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.
SHOT! Kalaba tries his luck from range, but it is an easy take for Oluoch who stars in goal for the Harambee Stars.
