Even though eventually going down by a 2-1 score-line, the 15-time Kenyan champions put on a display that left everyone at the National stadium in Dar es Salaam awed.

Returning Wayne Rooney had put the EPL side on the front-foot with a powerful right footed drive from outside the 18 yard area but this was equaled by Rwandese international Jacques Tuyisenge's brilliant near-post header from a Kenneth Muguna corner kick by the time the referee called for half time. Youngster Kieran Dowell however won it for Everton with a late pile-driver in the second half.

Attached herein are a few action photos from the match.
