Gor Mahia have been pooled in a tough Group ‘A’ of this year’s Cecafa Kagame Cup tournament to be held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
According to the draw conducted on Wednesday and obtained by Goal, K’Ogalo have been pooled alongside Tanzanian giants Yanga FC, Al-Khartoum (Sudan), Telecom of Somalia and KMKM of Zanzibar.
Last year's losing finalists Rwanda's Patriotic Army (APR), another Sudanese outfit Al Shandy, LLB (Burundi) and Elman (Somalia) will comprise Group ‘B’ while Group ‘C’ will comprise Azam (Tanzania), Malakia (South Sudan), Kampala City Council (Uganda) and Adama City (Ethiopia).
Two teams from each of these three groups, alongside the two best losers will proceed to the quarter-finals of the competition with all matches in the three-week tourney being played at the 60,000-seater National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

Gor Mahia will launch their campaign for the elusive crown against Yanga on July 18, take on KMKM of Zanzibar on July 20, face Anthony 'Teddy' Akumu's Al-Khartoum of Sudan on July 24 before winding up their preliminary matches against Telekom on July 26.
The top three teams will each be handed Sh3m, Sh2m and Sh1m respectively, in prize money. Gor Mahia will be representing Kenya at the regional competition for second successive year. They will be keen on snatching the title from Sudan’s powerhouse El-Merreikh, who beat host club APR of Rwanda in last year, with Kenyan striker Allan Wanga, scoring the all-important goal.
K’Ogalo suffered the ignominy of being tossed out at the group stages last term without winning a single match under then coach Bobby Williamson. The then K’Ogalo squad was light weight compared to the current coherent outfit and the Kenyan champions will have every reason to stake a claim at the trophy.
The competition will run from July 18- August 2.

Tetesi za usajili: Sergio Ramos apiga hatua nyingine kuelekea Manchester United baada ya mashabiki wa Real Madrid kutaka auzwe

MLINZI wa Real Madrid Sergio Ramos, 29 amepiga hatua nyingine mbele kuelekea kujiunga Manchester United baada ya asilimia 55 ya mashabiki wa Real Madrid wakitaka mlinzi huyo auzwe.
Awali mashabiki walipinga wazo la nahodha huyo kuuzwa lakini zaidi ya nusu ya mashabiki 25,000 waliopiga kura kwenye utafiti wa Diario AS wamedai kuwa nyuma ya klabu endapo itafanya maamuzi ya kumuuza mlinzi huyo kwa Manchester United.
Sergio Ramos wants his future resolved by the time he returns on July 10 for Real's pre-season training tour
Ramos' possible sale to Manchester United, alongside Iker Casillas, could see Real Madrid without a Spanish player in their first XI
Uwezekano wa Ramos kuuzwa kwa Manchester United, sanjari na Iker Casillas, kunaweza kuifanya Real Madrid kuwa bila wachezaji hao kwenye kikosi chao cha kwanza'Marca' has stated that Ramos is determined to leave Los Blancos, and his decision to go is irrevocable
'Marca' limesema kuwa Ramos anataka kuondoka Los Blancos
Kuuzwa kwa Ramos, sanjari na kuondoka kwa Iker Casillas kutamaanisha kuwa Real Madrid itaanza msimu ujao bila kuwa na mchezaji yeyote wa kihispania kwenye kikosi cha kwanza.
Kama Rafa Benitez ataanza msimu na: Danillo, Raphael Varane, Pepe, Marcelo, Toni Kross, Luka Modric, James Rodriguez, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale na Cristiano Ronaldo, kikosi cha kwanza cha Madrid kitajumuisha wabrazil wawili, wafaransa wawili, wareno wawili, mjerumani, McCroatian, raia wa Wales na Mcolombia mmoja, lakini hakutokuwa na mhispania.
