Gor Mahia assistant coach Zedekiah 'Zico' Otieno is optimistic the team can defeat Everton in a friendly match on Thursday.

The English side is expected to field key players among them Wayne Rooney, who completed his return from Manchester United last week. 'Zico' says K'Ogalo wants to make history and players are definitely ready for this anticipated clash.

"Well, this match reminds me of Norwich, they came to Kenya, I was a young boy by then, and Gor Mahia defeated them 4-2. We want to do it again this time round, we want to make history by being the first side from East Africa to defeat them (Everton). It is going to be a tough match though."

The green army is doing relatively well in the Kenyan Premier League and is currently leading the standings with 28 points.

The Toffees are using this match to prepare for the English Premier League set to start in a month's time.
