Substitute Andrew Kisilu scored his maiden Kenyan Premier League goal on Saturday 14 January 2023 during a match day nine tie in Kasarani to steer Nairobi City Stars to a 2-1 win over Sofapaka.
He came on for Mohammed Bajaber in the 69th minute when the game was tied 1-1 and nine minutes later he scored what turned out to be the winning goal.
Kisilu slammed home an effort by Samuel Kapen that had initially been blocked by the Sofapaka keeper Kevin Omondi to guide Simba wa Nairobi to their first win of the season after eight previous unsuccessful attempts.
He talked up the goal that has now made him hungry for more.
“I am happy to have opened my account with a goal that helped the team get all three points,”
“I thank the coaches for their support as well as my amazing teammates for making it possible to get the goal,”
“I am now looking forward to contributing more goals to the team going forward.” added the former Dandora Love forward
Kisilu made his topflight debut in matchday four against Posta Rangers in Thika in mid-December 2022, and has gone on to feature in all games thereafter.
