- Hull City won the contest 4-3 on penalties following a goalless draw
Nigel Adkins heaped praise on Gor Mahia and the atmosphere at the Kasarani following his side’s show against K’Ogalo.
The Tigers won 4-3 on penalties following a goalless draw at a fully packed Moi International stadium, Kasarani on Sunday and their coach couldn’t hide his excitement.
“What a great experience! 60000 fans in the stadium!,” exclaimed Adkins as quoted by Michezoafrika. “What a sports atmosphere! A great great thank you,” he added before admitting the weather was a little harsh on the England Championship side and praised Gor Mahia team.
“The weather was a bit hard on us but what a great game of football. It was so friendly, great collaboration It was a great show from both set of players. They have done themselves proud. Dylan has a great side here.
Although his side had players like Scotland number one David Marshal, former Manchester United players Will Keane and Fraizer Campbell, they couldn’t bring some players die to national team duty.
“There were several players we could not bring because of National duty. The players have sampled a different continent, different culture. Football is the winner.
Ugandan international Godfrey Walusimbi featured in the game.
It’s the third time the Kenyan giants faced a side from England – Norwich City (in the 80s), Everton and now Hull City.
