Gor Mahia are up against a heavily favoured opponent. Congolese side AC Leopards have the pedigree having won the CAF confederations cup in 2012.
However Gor Mahia are undaunted. They believe that all the hard work and effort they have put in over the past few weeks will pay off.
Three years ago, Odhiambo was in sensational scoring form. But whereas the goal supply has gone down, Odhiambo has been one of the most useful players at the club in the past year or so. He was buoyed by the crucial goal he scored in Madagascar that saw Gor Mahia through
“To be honest, every observer will bet in favour of AC Leopards because of what they have achieved in this competition. But we are Gor Mahia and we fear no foe,“The fighting spirit of Gor Mahia is what will lift us. We are the underdogs but we can shock Africa by eliminating AC Leopards,” said Onyango to supersport.com.
Of all the players, Jerim Onyango has been the most supportive of the new players despite facing intense competition for a starting poistion.
You notive that we have so many new players, but they have already settled in well and working as a team.”
“If we maintain the self belief that saw us go past the preliminary round, we shall make it to the second round. That is our goal,”
