The Under-22 Chinese national side on Wednesday came from behind to hold the Flames to a 2-2 draw in an international friendly match played at Jiaxing Sports Centre in China.
According to a commentary monitored on MBC Radio 2, the Flames took the lead through Frank Banda two minutes into the second-half.
However, the junior Chinese national side appeared to dominate the match and equalised in the 69th minute.
Flames goalkeeper Amadou Ali mistimed his movement to deal with a corner kick and a Chinese striker rifled the ball home from the rebound.
The hosts then struck again seven minutes to full time. The Flames, however, equalised four minutes later through captain Joseph Kamwendoâ€™s free-kick.
Apart from Banda and Kamwendo, the Flames also featured striker Esau Kanyenda.
Defender Foster Namwela and Kanyenda limped off injured and were replaced by Francis Mulimbika and Gabadini Mhango respectively.
