Mombasa Reds Enjoy the EPL Season Opener 2013/2014

17 Aug

Joy in Kenya’s second biggest urban center, the historic Mombasa, as Kenyan Kopites celebrate their beloved team’s 1-0 victory over Stoke City FC at Anfield on 17 August 2013.

The sole goal was scored in the 37th minute by Daniel Sturridge. The Reds also had debuting keeper Simon Mignolet to thank for his double saves from Jonathan Walters’ penalty and Kenywne Jones’ followup strike, in the game’s dying minutes.

Kenya school history books place the founding of Mombasa as 900 A.D. It is mentioned by Arab geographer Al Idrisi in 1151, testament to the town’s significance. The 2009 census estimates the population as 939,370.
