The Malawi National Women’s Football team is out of the race to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games after a 5-3 aggregate loss to Kenya in Nairobi yesterday.

The team went into the game with a one goal lead, having won 3-2 in the first leg encounter in the second round qualifiers at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre last week.

The She-Flames needed to defend the lead in the second leg, but the Harambee Starlets proved too much for them as Cynthia Shilwatso evened the aggregate score 18 minutes into the match.

Another goal in the 77th minute and one more ten minutes later sealed the deal for the Kenyan side to proceed to the third round of the qualifiers.
