Footballers worldwide are known to have pre-match rituals – the things they do before a game that put them in the right attitude.
Kenya’s Victor Wanyama is no different. The Harambee Stars Captain has revealed the pre-match ritual he undertakes before taking to the field when playing for his club Tottenham Hotspur.
Like most footballers, the former Southampton midfielder likes to listen to music. His favorite? Kenya’s Afropop band Sauti Sol and songbird Avril.
“When travelling to the stadium for league matches, I usually put on my headphones and listen to some music, mostly from Sauti Sol or Avril, wonderful stuff… that makes me relax and prepare for the task ahead,” Wanyama told Nairobi News.
The midfielder played a starring role in Kenya’s 1-0 win over Mozambique in an international friendly match at the Kasarani Stadium on Saturday evening.
