Gor Mahia forward Jacques Tuyisenge has lauded Kenyan fans for the overwhelming support during the friendly against Hull City at Kasarani on Sunday.

About 60, 000 supporters charged Kasarani, Kenya’s sports cathedral during the match that ended level in regulation time. “I thank the fans for coming; it was really awesome to see the big crowd. I have never seen this before,” the Rwandan star told Goal.

He added that he was not under pressure to score against Hull after registering his name on the score sheet against Everton in Tanzania last summer, K’Ogalo losing 2-1.

The Rwanda striker has called for the same turn out on Wednesday against USM Algiers at the same venue.

“This is what we need in Caf matches for us to do well. I would like them (fans) to come again in large numbers on Wednesday.”

Gor Mahia will face group leaders USM Algiers at 7pm (Kenyan time) under flood lights in a second Group match of the Caf Confederation Cup.
