Ogom Asugo from Marsabit county who is in Moscow for the Fifa Foundation Festival has won the hearts of many Kenyans after he was captured by a stray camera raising the Kenyan flag so high during the Round of 16 clash between Spain and host Russia.
The teen striker Ogom was part of other four other teens from Marsabit county who were part of Horn of Africa Development Initiative (Hodi) NGO delegation.
A total of 48 NGOs drawn from 38 countries are using football to drive social positive change for a period of 10 days in Russia.
The 18 year old kid is also a goat farmer.
