NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 24 – Kenya twice dropped their lead before being held to a 2-2 draw by Tanzania in their second CECAFA Under-20 Championship tie at the FUFA Technical Centre in Jinja on Tuesday afternoon.

The result sees both sides move to four points and each put one foot into the quarter finals. Kenya faces Ethiopia in the final Group B match while Tanzania will take on Zanzibar in the Taifa Derby. The battle will be to find the group winner with both teams currently level on everything.

AFC Leopards youngster Austin Odhiambo broke the deadlock for the Rising Stars in the 26th minute, but Tanzania took only 10 minutes to equalize through Albert Simchimba who scored thrice in the 4-0 win over Ethiopia.

Kenya regained the lead eight minutes into the second half through Patrick Otieno, but Stanley Okumbi’s men could not hold on to it as the Tanzanians equalized just three minutes later through Abdul Hamis.
