The highly billed friendly match between Kenyan champions Gor Mahia against English side Everton is unlikely to be played this year, Nairobi News understands.

The match was to be played either last month or this month - a period coinciding with the pre-season period for European clubs - at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England.

The English club had in early June confirmed as much on its official social media pages.

Giant gaming firm SportPesa, which incidentally is the jersey sponsors for both clubs, are involved in organizing this match. The firm's chief executive Ronald Karauri told to Nairobi News arrangements are ongoing and an announcement will be made soon.

"We are working with Everton to get the best possible date and will announce in the coming week," Karauri said.

According to the post on Facebook we will be playing each other either on the 6th or 7th November which I believe is a few days before we play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge (and just after a home game with Brighton). 

Despite it stating in the piece that Gor Mahia will play the Everton "first team" I would be shocked and annoyed if we risked anyone from the Starting XI in this. I expect a side plucked from the youth department with the odd experienced head such as Stekelenburg and Jagielka to keep things ticking.

It would make more sense if it was the weekend after the Chelsea game because that's an international break.

All a bit pointless for me this, it'll tell Silva fuck all, it'll have minimal effect on our standing in Africa, waste of time.

since we bombed out of the league cup its nice to give some of the fringe players a game.  but i agree with the rest.  i'm sure its a stipulation of the sponsorship with sportpesa and that's the only reason it happens.
