Gor out to gain exposure as clock ticks to Everton clash
- The team which jetted out three days ago amidst pomp and colour have undergone a medical examination, conducted by Everton team of doctors, getting a clean bill of health ahead of the duel.
- On the contest, Ngala said they expect a tough match adding that they’ll not treat their hosts lightly.
As the clock ticks to the much awaited historic friendly match between English Premier League side Everton and Kenyan football powerhouse Gor Mahia which kicks off in less than 48 hours at Goodison Park in England, anticipation is high that the tie will offer the K’Ogalo contingent a massive exposure if not open the doors of opportunities.
Rightly so, there is no gainsaying that some of the talents within the K’Ogalo roster are cut for the top-league competition in Europe’s elite leagues but the window of opportunity hasn’t presented itself.
So when the K’Ogalo contingent, led by skipper Harun Shakava strut out of the Goodison Park dug out at 10pm tomorrow, they’ll srive to put their best foot forward with an aim of catching the eye of some of the scouts who will be on parade.
The team which jetted out three days ago amidst pomp and colour have undergone a medical examination, conducted by Everton team of doctors, getting a clean bill of health ahead of the duel.
Yesterday, the K’Ogalo playing unit had a training drill at Everton’s training ground, the USM Finch Park before attending media management classes presided over by Everton media personnel.
In the session they were taken through a number of subjects including on-pitch behavior, mechanism of avoiding injuries on artificial turfs, and how to address local and International media, among others.
On Monday, a number of Gor’s players were expected to get their fingers dirty in doing some CSR work.
Club deputy secretary general Ronald Ngala told Citizen Digital from Goodison Park that the boys are excited since they are playing an English EPL team on English soil.
‘’The kind of reception we got here is of class and this will live in the players’ minds forever. Everton officials are so friendly and we want to sustain this friendship for as long as it can be,” Ngala said.
On the contest, Ngala said they expect a tough match adding that they’ll not treat their hosts lightly.
Gor earned the ticket to face Everton after retaining the Super Cup title on June 10 at the Afraha Stadium, Nakuru after beating Simba Sc 2-0 in the final.
