Nairobi City Stars wrapped their 2021/22 FKF Premier League season with a 2-2 draw against FC Talanta at the Kasarani Annex on Sunday 12 June 2022.

The game was the 34th and final tie of the season, and the point earned, of goals from stalwarts Ezekiel Odera and Peter Pinchez Opiyo, guaranteed the club a fifth-placed finish.

It was Odera’s opener that activated the scoresheet in the first half in what was his tenth goal of the season, and Opiyo’s goal, his third of the season, is what leveled the game as the hosts scored twice at the restart to take a 2-1 lead.
