National U-20 coach Vincent Ombiji named a 42 player team that will travel to Sudan to play in an Africa cup qualifier. The Kogalo players in the team are Musa Mohammed, Duncan Owiti and Anthony Akumu. A surprise exclusion from the team is Kevin Omondi who last year was voted the most valuable player at the national secondary school games as he led Langata high to the national title. A month ago he scored from a free kick giving Kogalo 3 valuable points against Sher.

 Midfielder Akumu who is nicknamed Viera has delighted fans with his ability to curve open opposing defences with precise passes and excellent runs.

Musa Mohammed who is the younger brother to nationally reknown boxer Fatima Zarika has played a pivotal role in the Kogalo defence this year ever since he joined from FISA academy. He is also a product of Langata secondary school. Coach Zedekiah Otieno “Zico” has described him as highly disciplined and a good tackler. At 19, he has emerged as one of the best defenders in the league.

Duncan Owiti has proven himself as a reliable goal peacher with the ability to place himself in the right place at the right time to notch crucial goals. He is a product of Nyanza province  giants Thur Gem secondary school where he played alongside Blackberry. Owiti injured his hand before the season break and may be available to the U-20 for future matches.

    Dancan owiti has been replaced by Abdimalik Mohamed due to the injury he sustained while training with Harambee stars for the Ugandan match.

  • Eric O says:

    And why is Blackberry not in this squad? The coach has just picked AFC leopards players lilo!!

    Thanks for your information Ngala, kumbe you read this page. Why not inform us dear supporters/fans on the registrations of the 6819 SMS and its benefits? This is a good forum for the office to communicate to many loving Gor fan base.

    We also have a good player in the name of Robert Onyango. He can make a difference in any team if given a chance. Anyway those three are enough for now our focus is on the KPL not Harambee Stars. GOR BIRO!!!

    Is there Gor mahia youth footbal team, if not we can sponsor one so that we get our players from the youth team, that will help in building a strong Gor since our country has failed to do that.

  • It’s good for our players to get exposure we support them.

  • Anthony Akumu is really the future Patrick Viera (if not today’s). I see that boy going far, as well as other Gor players; discipline is the key word, maintain that and you will be a star. Akumu is a workhorse, he fights for every ball. Whoever called him Viera saw it. Am surprised he’s not yet 20. It is needless to point out that the whole Gor bench is Harambee Stars material (inclusive of the subs).

  • On Sunday let the brewers console themselves with their own drinks after the K’Ogalo match! GOR BIRO….!

  • Ayub says:

    Lets not be so much hyped up. We still have 13 matches to go. Hope our keys players remain injury free, while the like of Owiti return to the team. Gor for life.

    Abdimalik is the new King in the making…I am yet to come to terms with the way Kevin “Veron” O. split open the Ugandan defence in Nyayo Stadium. The boy has got talent. I hope he will be considered in the return match.
