The match was screened on Kenyan television. There was widespread disappointment about the standard of the football, but relief among the United contingent that their team had won.
Football is the most popular sport in Kenya, as in many other African countries, and many Kenyans follow the fortunes of English clubs. Clubs in the Premiership are, by and large, more popular than their Continental counterparts. There is, however, disappointment here that the standard of domestic football does not match its popularity, and it has not kept pace with other sports like athletics and boxing.
