Gor beat AFC 5-4 in penalties to set up clash with Hull City

Gor Mahia have earned the right to play English Championship side Hull City in an international friendly in Nairobi on May 13 (confirm the date) next month, after defeating rivals AFC Leopards 5-4 in post-match penalties.

This thrilling friendly played before a sold out crowd at the 12,000-seater venue initially ended goalless after 90 minutes.

Meddie Kagere missed Gor Mahia’s penalty while Whyvonne Isuza and Vincent Oburu’s spot kicks were saved by Gor Mahia’s substitute keeper.

“I enjoyed the game especially because each player gave a hundred percent. Leopards were dangerous for some spells but overall we were the better team. We have some important games before facing Hull City but I’m sure we will give them a good game,” Gor’s English coach Dylan Kerr explained in his post-match interview.

This will be the second time in as many years the Kenyan champions are facing English side, having lost 2-1 to Wayne Rooney’s Everton at the National Stadium in Dar last year.
