Kenya missed a chance to go level on points with Group G leaders Comoros after being held to a 1-1 draw by the Sparrow Hawks of Togo in Monday’s 2021 Africa Nations Cup Qualifiers tie at the Moi International Sports Centre Kasarani.

"It was a good game; the boys showed fantastic mentality against a top and experienced team. The draw is what we got and we will improve on that to try get a win in the next game at home," Harambee Stars Coach Francis Kimanzi.
