A last gasp strike from outside the box earned Victoria University of Uganda  victory over AFC Leopards of Kenya 2-1 to become the new champions of Cecafa  Nile Basin tournament and carry home Sh2.6m (USD30.000)

With the match headed for extra time, Mutyaba Muzamir converted from a free-kick just outside the box for the winning goal that thwarted Ingwe's hopes of lifting the trophy.

Victoria were the first to find back of the net through Mathew Odongo. The Ugandans should have added second five minutes later but Ceaser Sapeo's header went inches wide.

Then Ingwe, who were playing minus suspended duo Noah Wafula and Bernard Mang'oli, drew level in 45th minute through Nigerian striker Austine Ikkena.

Salute Origi : Kenyan Divock Origi became the 1st Kenyan to score at the world cup after he turned a listless Belgian performance into a late 1-0 win over Russia on Sunday, enough to qualify for the next round of the World Cup with two straight victories. With this goal, Origi became the youngest goalscorer in Belgium World Cup history at 19 years, 65 days old. With Belgian King Philippe looking on, substitute Kevin Mirallas hit a freekick against the post in 84th minute, setting off a late revival. At first it looked like late moves from Eden Hazard would only camouflage a dismal performance. Playmaker Edin Hazard made a move into the penalty box area on the left and spotted Origi free in the center. A pinpoint pass from Hazard and cool right-foot finishing from the 19-year-old Origi gave Belgium more than it deserved. Divock Origi who is the son of renown former Harambee Stars player Mike Okoth Origi was born at Oostende Belgium and has lived most of his life outside Kenya. Taking into account of his nationality Kenyans could not stay away from celebrating that special moment of fame after he scored like they did for Obama and Lupita Nyong’o. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
