Michael Olunga was at his best when Kenya defeated neighbours Tanzania 3-2 at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Olunga netted a brace and powered Harambee Stars forward with a brilliant overhead kick and wonderful second strike to overturn Tanzania’s initial lead.
Kenyans on twitter joined the world in showering praise on the superb forward who put up a performance that proved exactly what the Kashiwa Reysol forward was all about.
Olunga’s five star performance and Total Man of the Match award did not overshadow Harambee Stars brilliant performance overall.
Kenya displayed all the needed qualities to contend with Africa’s best as they put up an entertaining performance alongside Taifa Stars, showing East Africa’s true football potential.
Johanna Omolo’s near-post header from a well taken corner helped put Kenya level at 2-2 and inspire hope with just 28 minutes remaining on the clock.
This is now Kenya’s second victory in AFCON after Kenya’s first victory over Burkina Faso in 2004 when Dennis Oliech, John Barasa and Emanuel Ake fired Kenya to a 3-0 win.
