Someone once said, Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. In regard to the SportPesa Super Cup, all players have the ability to perform and the motivation from the grand cash prize including this once in a lifetime opportunity to play against Everton FC on East African soil is second to none.
Reaching the finals and grasping this immense opportunity will depend highly on the attitude both the players and coaches display during the tournament.
Everton FC C.E.O Robert Elstone and former Toffees midfielder Leon Osman visited Tanzania and expressed delight in regard to the historic football match. “Pre-season is a critically important time for us as Ronald Koeman and his staff prepare the players for a big season ahead. Being the first Premier League team to come and play in Tanzania will be an exciting part of those preparations,” he said upon arrival in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania.
Some Kenyan players will have the chance to play an English Premier league side for the second time in a year, courtesy of SportPesa. An all-star team from the Kenya Premier league teams flew to England to play against Hull City in February. It is quite clear that SportPesa are the biggest entity in African football with the agenda of completely revolutionising the outlook toward it.
The match will be played at the National Stadium in Dar Es Salaam on the 13th of July, with the kick-off time to be confirmed.
