Football Kenya Federation surprised the fast rising forward who turned 23-years-old at the team’s training camp in Machakos, with a green birthday cake, which he cut in front of his head coach, Stanley Okumbi, brother Victor Ogada, Mike Okoth and a number of team mates.

Olunga recently signed for newly promoted Chinese outfit Guizhou Zhicheng in a deal believed to be in excess of Sh450M from Swedish side, Djurgårdens IF where he finished as the club’s joint top scorer with 12 goals after switching from Kenyan giants, Gor Mahia.

Olunga has been in a superb form for the national side scoring three goals in two matches. This is after he scored a fantastic solo goal against Uganda Cranes at the same venue on Thursday last week, in a 1-1 draw.
