Nairobi City Stars came from behind to see off non-contracted players, assembled by Kenya Footballers Welfare Association (KEFWA) 4-2 at Two Rivers grounds on Thursday 6 October 2021.
Ezekiel Odera’s header off a Kevin Okumu’s float activated the scoresheets mid-way through the first half.
Augustine Kuta, formerly of Western Stima, pounced on a rebound from keeper Jacob Osano to slam home a leveler that sent the two teams to the breather drawn 1-1.
Kuta doubled matters into the second half with a left-footed shot off a Steve Angulu cross from the right.
Simba wa Nairobi however clawed back with Odera’s second header, off a freekick by Herit Mungai, before Erick Ombija and Vincent Otieno Jamaica tapped home close rangers to complete the comeback win.
“The friendly by the KEFWA team was a quality one that stretched and tested the boys well. It was good to test different combinations and approaches as we prepare for league games mid of the month.” said head coach Nicholas Muyoti
The team will next play National Super League side Kibera BlackStars on Saturday morning at Ligi Ndogo.
