"Ethiopia are the designated hosts of the Challenge Cup from November to December," Cecafa Secretary General Nicholas Musonye said.

"A Cecafa delegation will visit Addis Ababa after the World Cup to finalise arrangements and sponsorship."

It is the first time Ethiopia will hold the regional tournament 2006.

Defending Champions ,Kenya will be eager to defend their title, but will face a tough challenge from hosts Ethiopia and 13-time winners Uganda.

"After our meetings in Addis Ababa, we shall communicate which guest sides to be invited to come and spice up the event," added Musonye.

Musonye also announced that Rwanda will host the Club Championship in August and confirmed that the President of Rwanda, Paul Kagame, has already honoured his pledge of US$60,000 towards the prize money.

"Cecafa and the Rwanda FA are finalizing the sponsorship package that will cater for expenses for all teams and delegations at the event," added Musonye.

Musonye is also expecting a very competitive competition in Rwanda.

Last year's tournament in Darfur, Sudan was hit by the withdrawal of several regional champions over security concerns but passed without any incidents.

Burundi's Vital 'O won the tournament with a 2-0 win over Rwanda's APR 2-0.

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. ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
