Kapenguria Heroes beat Nakuru AllStars 2-0 in an entertaining boy’s final match of the Rift Valley Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom Tournament played at the Narok Stadium on Sunday 12th November.
David Majak, who had scored four goals on Saturday as Kapenguria beat Kapsoit to proceed to the final, continued to shine as he scored from the spot on both halves to send Kapenguria to the National finals set for March next year.
Majak says the team had prepared very well for the final and he’s happy to contribute to the success.
“We had prepared very well for this final and our hard work paid off. Personally, I wanted to do well and I’m happy I managed to score the goals that ensured we head to Nairobi for the finals next year,” Majak said.
For the win, Kapenguria bagged Ksh 200,000, a trophy and the opportunity to represent Rift Valley region in the National finals next year while Nakuru AllStars go back home with Ksh 100,000 and a trophy. At the grand finale in Nairobi, the winning teams will walk away with Sh1 million each and an opportunity to go for an international training and mentorship camp in London in April 2018 with Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama.
The lanky striker, who is only 18, says his dream is to play for English Premier League (EPL) side Tottenham Hotspur.
“We are not going to Nairobi to just participate – our main goal is to head to London and personally if given the opportunity I’d like to have trials over there and I promise to impress. I’m a big Tottenham Hotspur fan and I admire Harry Kane. I will be his replacement at the club,” Majak confidently said.
Tartar girls’ champions
Earlier on, Tartar Girls thrashed Iten Ladies 7-1 in the Ladies final and will also represent Rift Valley in the National finals in Nairobi next year.
Majak scooped the MVP award as well as the Golden Boot as he scored six goals while Nakuru AllStars custodian George Ochieng was named the best goalkeeper.
