African Cup of Nation is currently the talk of the day in the whole world and eyes are set towards it. Gor Mahia have not been left out of the excitement as they have expressed their hearty congratulation to their players who have made it to the final selection.
Arguably, AFCON is going to be the hottest contest of the year and especially for Kenya, it will be a once in a lifetime event.
For the first time after 15 years, Kenya will be making a debut to this tournament. For that reason, Kenyans are eagerly waiting to grace this wonderful moment.
As the Football Kenya Federation president Nick Mwendwa said, everything is ready and is positive that the players will deliver positive results.
