Nation FC complete double victories in Mombasa friendlies

Nation FC made a very successful trip to the Coast this weekend by winning their two matches at modern Bomu and Uwanja wa Mbuzi stadiums in Mombasa.

Nation FC started their tour by registering an easy 4-1 victory over Coast Media FC during a hurriedly arranged friendly match at Bomu Stadium in Mombasa on Saturday in the tour supported by Capricorn Group, an integrated facilities management company.

The Nation team was to play the Mombasa County Government team but the match was rescheduled to Sunday and Coast Media FC coach Kevin Odit hurriedly called some of his players to play the game against the Nairobi team.

Nation scored their goals against Coast media team through Sammy Mumicha, Isaac Ochieng, Athman Mashuhuri and John “Jontes” Ohuma with the Coast team’s consolation goal netted by Brian Otieno.

In their second match at Uwanja wa Mbuzi Stadium on Sunday morning, the Nation team maintained their winning form by hammering the previously unbeaten Mombasa County Government team 6-3.


It was a sweet revenge to the Nation team which lost 3-2 to their hosts during their first visit some months ago at the same venue.

The visitors got their goals through Isaac “Mbappe” Ochieng, who netted a hat-trick, Sammy Mumicha, Joseph “Pogba” Wasike and Andrew Abuodha.

Hajj Ramadhan, Nicholas Otieno and James Mutua replied for the home team.

Nation team coach John Ashihundu said he was happy with the way the team played both their matches.

“I’m happy to have ended our tour on winning form and I hope we’ll continue to perform well in our next friendly and competitive matches,” said Ashihundu.

It is the second trip for Nation is making at the Coast having earlier also played against the Coast Media FC in a match which ended in a 3-3 draw and lost 3-2 to Mombasa County team.
