Netizens are still stunned by Nicholas Kipkurui’s performance where he scored a goal in either half and created the third as Gor Mahia continued their dominance over arch rivals AFC Leopards beating them 3-1 in the Mashemeji Derby at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on Sunday.

What has Kenyans not happy is why he was not included in the Harambee stars AFCON 2019 provisional squad that was announced last week.
Kipkurui has been excellent this season for Gor mahia, a future partnership with olunga is on the horizon, Gutted to see him not being selected for #Afcon duties. Congratulations to the best team in East Africa for winning another championship #sirkal #MashemejiDerby

Some said that the combination between him and Michael Olunga would have been the best.
Joash Onyango please don't try that kind of defending against Mahrez and Mane at #AFCON2019 they are merciless.
Paul were needs to up his game, football is a team game.
Sebastien Migne look what Kipkirui and Muguna can do but I guess they are not good enough for #HarambeeStars

Kipkirui should go to AFCON #MashemejiDerby

Kipkirui is a Kenyan Messi. His exploits at Kasarani today and general performance for Gor Mahia this season warrants him a place in Harambee Stars AFCON squad. Perhaps this is the man to help us reach last 8, No favourism in Kenyan squad, Gor Kende. #MashemejiDerby #Sirkal pic.twitter.com/kFg61yHWYL

Nicholas Kipkirui deserved a call up to the national team that will do duty at the upcoming AFCON in Egypt

2 goals and an assist for Kipkirui. But he's conspicuously missing from our AFCON team. #MashemejiDerby
