Two Kenyan footballers are part of two different teams that qualified for the champions league.


Divock Origi, a Belgium-born Kenyan footballer, helped Liverpool defeat Barcelona by scoring two goals on Tuesday.


Tottenham Hotspur defeated Ajax on Wednesday, giving its Kenyan midfielder Victor Wanyama the ticket to play against Liverpool at the Champions League final.


Wanyama's brother, McDonald Mariga, won the Champions League with Inter Milan in 2010 and was the first Kenyan to play top level football in Italy and Spain.


Origi and Wanyama will meet in Madrid in June.


Nairobi city governor Mike Sonko is among those who tweeted.
