Kenya edged out 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier contenders DR Congo by two goals to one in an international friendly match on Sunday. The hosts took the lead four minutes into the match when Michael Olunga scored against a run of play. The visitors fought back, with Gael Kakuta's well curved 25-yard free kick on the hour mark leveling the score as the Central African Nation looked to spoil Kenya's party. Olunga, the Kenyan international, who plies his trade with Guizhou Zhicheng in the China Super League, added a second goal, tapping in from a close range. There was controversy at the death after Congo were denied an equalizer for an infringement, but the match referee would not bulge even after protests.
