NAIROBI, Kenya, June 28 – Nairobi’s Upper Hill School will clash with Dagoretti Boys High School in the final of the Nairobi Region COPA Coca-Cola U-16 football tournament.

“I know Dagoretti is planning a revenge match with us since we beat them to the regional finals last year, but we will not allow them to win since we also want to win at the national,” said Upper Hill’s striker Salman Abdikadir.

Upper Hill High School got into the match the favorites to cruise through, they affirmed their presence in the 33rd minute through Andrew Teddy and sealed an encounter with Dagoretti in the 67th minute through Salman Abdikadir.
