Dennis Oliech on target, downs SJAK FC in Europe Day Kenya Football challenge curtain raiser

Former Kenyan international Dennis ‘The Menace’ Oliech was on target as ex-Harambee Stars downed Kenya Sports Journalists Association of Kenya (SJAK) FC 2-0 in the curtain raiser of the 2024 Europe Day Kenya Football Tournament finals held at the Ulinzi Sports Complex in Langata, Nairobi on Friday.

Nicholas Muyoti was the first to find the net for the winners in the see-saw opening half where the scribes missed chances by a whisker.

“We are glad to have honored this fixture. It was a good game, this forum gave us an opportunity to interact with journalists who tell our stories far and wide,” Muyoti underlined.

SJAK President James Waindi assured that the scribes association will continue to engage in such high-profile fixtures, with another cutthroat battle looming against Football Kenya Federation at the Dandora Stadium on Saturday morning.

“This game played today was an inspiration to these upcoming footballers who have reached the finals. It gave the young participants a chance to meet their childhood heroes like Oliech who was very prolific for Kenya in his hey-days,” European Union Ambassador to Kenya Henriette Geiger highlighted.

Winners of the Europe Day Kenya Football tournament will get an opportunity to represent the country in a global sports extravaganza slated for Romania later in the year.
