Gor Mahia Set To Play Against Everton's First 11

Everton is set to visit Tanzania for a pre-season friendly with the winners of the just concluded Sportpesa Super Cup, Gor Mahia FC. The match will take place on the 13th of July 2017 and is probably the most high profile club friendly to have happened in East Africa. So the main question on everyone’s mind has been, “Will Everton FC actually brings it’s first team to play Gor?”
Everton has indeed confirmed that they will be staging a club friendly in Tanzania between their first team and Kenya’s Gor Mahia. Gor will become the first East African club to play an English Premier League Club in East Africa.
