Zambia's women's football team qualify for their first Olympics

Zambia's women's football team have qualified for their first Olympic Games after beating Cameroon over two legs.

Zambia lost the first leg 3-2 but won the second 2-1 and so qualified through away goals.

Mary Mwakapila and Hellen Mubanga scored in the first half to put Zambia ahead.

However, Cameroon's Nchout Ajara pulled one back in the 92nd minute but it wasn't enough to secure an Olympic spot.

Cameroon have one more chance to qualify for Tokyo as they face Chile in a two-leg play-off next month.
