Olunga Sends neighbour’s Tanzania home

Michael Olunga scored twice as Kenya came from behind to beat Tanzania 3-2 in an Africa Cup of Nations thriller.

Kashiwa Reysol forward Olunga drilled in a late winner, having earlier made it 1-1 with a superb overhead kick and also heading against the crossbar.

Tanzania had gone ahead twice through Simon Msuva’s tap-in and Mbwana Samatta’s effort for a half-time lead.

Johanna Omolo flicked in a header at the near post for Kenya, before Olunga struck with just 10 minutes remaining.

The result moves Kenya level on three points with Senegal, who were beaten by Algeria while Tanzania exit the tournament still searching for their first victory.
