Liverpool, ENGLAND: 2018 Kenya premier league champions were humbled to a 4-0 defeat by English premier league side Everton at Goodison park in Liverpool.

Gor settled in well after the start of the match and went ahead to attack in the 5th minute when Francis Kahata sent in a cross only for Mustapha to fire wide.

A leak in the Kogalo defence a minute past the quarter hour mark saw Ademola Lookman tap in from close range to beat Kogalo’s Number 1 Boniface Oluoch and by half time the scoreline read 2-0 with Kieran dowel also getting on the scoresheet.

Two late goals from Nathan Broadhead and Oumar Niase sealed the victory for the toffees on home ground.

The 17 time KPL champions who earned the trip to Goodison park after winning the super cup early this year lost the match on the night but sure picked up some valuable lessons.
