Gor Mahia earned a chance to play Everton after emerging the winner of the second edition of the Super Cup held between June 3 and 10 in Nakuru, Kenya, featuring eight teams from East Africa.
This will be the second time that Gor Mahia is taking on Everton, after their maiden clash in Dar es Salaam on July 13, 2017. Gor Mahia also played English Championship side Hull City at a match held in Nairobi on May 13 this year.
