Gor Mahia FC is the first African team to ever have played on English soil against an EPL team. Their opponents, Everton FC, showed class as they have outplayed the Kenyan 17 time league winners on almost all departments. Two goals apiece in each half from Ademora Lookman, Kieran DowelL, Broadhead and Niasse spoilt the party for Gor Mahia.

K’Ogalo, as Gor is popularly known, will make a tidy sum from this match. Apart from the exposure-and catching the eye of one or two scouts-the players would have received a much higher pay if they had won or atleast drawn. But the odds were obviously stacked against them. The culture shock, unforgiving low temperatures and some have even blamed ODM leader Raila Odinga presence at Goodison Park for Gor’s thrashing.

SportPesa-which is the jersey sponsor for both Gor and Everton-was involved in organizing the highly anticipated match. The giant gaming firm CEO Ronald Karauri handed a token to K’Ogelo to boost the morale of the players a day to the big match.
