Substitute Levis Okello struck at the death to earn Nairobi City Stars a share of the spoils during a 1-1 draw with Ulinzi Stars on Sunday 7 May 2023 in Ulinzi Complex, Langata, in a match day 29 Premier League tie.
Okello had only been on the pitch for a couple of minutes after being thrown into action in place of Elvis Noor Ojiambo in the 88th minute.
He fired home a layup to the top of the roof after getting to the end of James Mazembe’s headed ball in the box.
“I went in and did what I was asked to do which was to get the goal(s),”
“I am happy to have opened my account at City Stars, and even happier that the goal made sure we left the field of play with an important point after missing many chances during the first half,”
“The goal inspires me to even work harder and to fetch more to help the team move further up the table.” added Okello
Okello arrived at Simba wa Nairobi in March during the mid-transfer window for the second leg, on loan from Kakamega Homeboyz.
