AFC Leopards have been crowned champions of the Football Kenya Federation GOtv Shield after beating Gor Mahia 1-0 in the final on Sunday at the Nyayo National Stadium.
Peter Opiyo scored the all-important goal as Ingwe celebrated their cup success in style against the Kenyan Premier League champions. Leopards’ fans invaded the pitch after the final whistle as Gor Mahia fans watched from the stands in disbelief.
It was fast-paced game, one that brought together the two most successful clubs in Kenyan football.
Since 1991, Gor Mahia and AFC Leopards had not met in the final of a domestic cup competition.
Cameroon striker Samuel Eto'o netted his third goal in two games for his club Chelsea as they drew 2:2 with visitors West Brom in an English Premier League match on Saturday.
Eto'o's 45th minute effort, coming after a brace against Schalke in a UEFA Champions League tie on Wednesday, gave the Blues the lead.
However West Brom bounced back with two goals of their own including a fine effort from Benin international Stephane Sessegnon who blasted home from just outside the box to make it 2:1.
It was Sessegnon's second goal of the campaign.
