Ochaya piled pressure on Anthony Kimani who scored an own goal in the 27th minute after diverting Robert Ssentongo cross into the net.

In the second half, Kenya appeared the better side and kept on knocking on the door till the 87th minute when Edwin Lavasta who had a good game tapped in Paul Were’s by line low cross from the left wing.

As the game appeared headed for a draw, Geoffrey ‘Baba’ Kizito scored the winning goal with the clock ticking 90 minutes.

The former SC Villa and Express FC midfielder headed home Robert Ssentongo’s free kick after Abdallah Juma handed the ball on the edge of the area.
