Harambee Stars Keeper Origi Hails Johanna’s Goalazo against Ulinzi

He may be thousands of miles away from home but Kenya’s number one goalkeeper Arnold Origi is a man who keeps tabs with what’s happening in his homeland.

The 31-year-old keeper at Norwegian club, Lillestrom, was this week following closely his former KPL side Mathare United who traveled to Nakuru for their match against Ulinzi Stars.

Although the Soldiers won the match thanks to two first half goals from Stephen Ocholla and Kevin Amwayi, it was the consolation goal that Johanna Eric scored for the Slum Boys that delighted Origi.

Trailing 2-0 after half time, Johanna drilled in an unstoppable right footed strike from an impossible angle on the left channel on the pitch leaving Ulinzi keeper James Saruni clutching at thin air.

“Just seen Eric Johanna's goal for Mathare United against Ulinzi. No keeper in the world would have kept that out,” said Origi after watching the goal.

It was Johanna’s fourth goal of the season and the best of the lot which will for sure be a goal of the season contender.

Origi spent close to 7 years at Mathare United before signing for Tusker in 2006. He went to Norway a year later and has been playing in the Scandinavian country for nearly 8 years now.
