Ocholah adds; “We had the fans behind us and we really did not want to disappoint. When we got the throw in, I knew that was our moment. I just decided to throw it straight at goal and luckily, Dawo was there to do the rest.”
The three legends agree that their desire to be champions and the push from the passionate fans ensured they made history.
“We did not play for money but we played because we loved the game. All of us wanted to do something good for the team and the fans. Also, almost nine of us were in the national team and not less than six were starting at that point. So we had so much chemistry. We were playing for both the national team and the club and thus our fitness was on point,” Oduor remarked.
“When I signed for Gor in 1986, we only came two of us; myself and Anthony Ndolo. Meaning, the team that had been there before was retained. There was so much chemistry in the team and when we were playing in the league, we would beat teams six or seven goals,” we were unstoppable.
