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.
