Two standout players Anthony Muki Kimani – the skipper – and Davis Agesa in Nairobi City Stars starting premier league win over Nzoia Sugar last Sunday in Narok have been named in the first eleven team of the week.
Muki scored the opening goal a minute after the quarter hour. And two minutes later it was 2-0 when Oliver Maloba slammed in the second. Agesa provided both assists.
