Three Harambee Stars players won big trophies for their respective clubs this weekend.

Three Harambee Stars footballers won big for their clubs this past weekend, to make them motivated enough ahead of potential call ups by Engin Firat for their World Cup qualifying fixtures against Ivory Coast and Burundi.

Amos Nondi and Alwyn Tera played pivotal roles in leading their club, Ararat-Armenia, to victory in the Armenian Cup final against Urartu on Sunday evening. 

The historic win marked Ararat-Armenia's first-ever cup triumph, with the Kenyan duo leaving an indelible mark on the club's footballing history. 

The match ended in a one-all draw after regulation and extra time, before Ararat-Armenia sealed a 5-3 victory in the penalty shootout. Tera, who started the game, played for 87 minutes before being replaced by compatriot Nondi.

Meanwhile, Alphonce Omija, formerly of Kariobangi Sharks and Gor Mahia, played a prominent role in helping Omani side Dhofar FC clinch the Sultan Cup with a 2-0 win over Al-Nahda.

 Despite Dhofar's struggles in the league, where they currently sit 10th and have not won any of their last five matches, securing another cup will undoubtedly boost their confidence as they approach their remaining fixtures and battle to avoid relegation.

In Romania, Kenyan international Eric Johana featured for the full 90 minutes for his club, UTA Arad, despite suffering a 2-0 loss to Dinamo Bucuresti in a Romanian Liga match. 

The game saw both sides reduced to ten players, with UTA's Imoh Ezekiel receiving a red card in the 61st minute, and Patriche being dismissed in the 89th minute. Despite the defeat, Johana's presence on the pitch highlights his importance to the team.
