60,000 fans packed into the Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi, Kenya, on Sunday afternoon as the Tigers took part in a friendly against Gor Mahia, a match arranged in conjunction with our Main Shirt Sponsor SportPesa.
Nigel Adkins’ side faced the Kenyan League Champions in a match aimed at exposing their opponents to international competition and increasing their exposure to the world football scene, in-keeping with SportPesa’s mission to develop football on the African continent.
A hard-fought game ended 0-0, with the match eventually decided by a penalty shoot-out with the Tigers running out 4-3 winners after successful spot kicks from Jon Toral, Kevin Stewart, Billy Chadwick and Robbie McKenzie.
The post-season trip will now continue with the squad and staff set to visit a number of community projects in the next couple of days, before returning to the UK on Wednesday.
Hull City (Starting XI): David Marshall, Dan Batty, Robbie McKenzie, Adam Curry, Stephen Kingsley, Kevin Stewart, Evandro, Jarrod Bowen, Fraizer Campbell, Jon Toral, Will Keane.
