NAIROBI, Kenya, Oct 10 – Capital FM played some exquisite football as they put 13 past a hapless Kenyan On Twitter All Star team (#KOT5Aside) in a one sided encounter that saw the Best Mix of Music make light work on their opponents in a friendly match hosted at the Ngong Road Arena on Moi Day.

The match was over in the first half itself as skipper of the day Kristian Malumbe and deadly forward Vincent Otieno ran riot on the pitch to see Capital FM take a commanding 5-0 lead in the first stanza that ended 5-1.

With the help of Solomon Okeyo who bossed the midfield and supplied the precise passes, Malumbe hit the target five times, Otieno grabbed four goals, Salim Mudi notched a hat-trick as Ali Athman netted one. KOT All Star only managed to find the back at the net twice.

KOT All Star’s fate was decided when the first goal they conceded was from the penalty spot after an opponent handled the ball inside the box for Malumbe to step up and calmly convert the kick to open the flood of goals.

The second half was even more tantalizing and not even the rain could stop Capital FM, the 2016 Standard Chartered World Trophy champions from humiliating the Keyboard Warriors as the Best Mix of Music team added eight more goals to seal the win.

Malumbe thanked his charges for the superb display, urging them to maintain the tempo as they plan for more friendlies.

“Today we came to confirm that we are the champions, we played well as a team. KOT All Stars were worthy opponents, we approached this match with a lot of seriousness and I am so happy that we lived up to our expectations,” Malumbe disclosed after the big win.

On his part, KOT All Stars head coach, Sir Alexas conceded defeat and challenged his side to pull up their socks.

“Capital FM is a good side, they know how to play football, they coordinated well and played as a team. We tried our best but I believe we could have done better. We will go back to training to work on our weakness and I promise we will bounce back,” Alexas who is the organiser of the annual #KOT5Aside football tournament said.
