Gumnok among leading scorers after Cecafa U-20 Challenge Cup group stage

South Sudan’s Dani Lual Gumnok is among the top six leading scorers as the Cecafa U-20 Challenge Cup heads to the quarter final stage.

A record 56 goals have been scored in the 15 games played in the group stage with three players having scored four goals, while Gumnok’s hat-trick against Burundi places him among the top six.

Gumnok will be hoping to increase his tally when South Sudan face Sudan in one of the quarter final matches at the Pece War Memorial Stadium in Gulu on Sunday.

“I am hungry to score more goals in the knock out stage. We are happy to make it to the quarter final stage and we shall work hard to try and eliminate Sudan,” added Gumnok.

Kenya’s Sydney Lokale, Yoseif Mawei Tesfai (Eritrea) and the Tanzanian duo of Kelvin Pius John and Andrew Albart Simchimba are the leading scorers with four goals each. Gumnok together with Sudan’s Mohamad Abbas Namir and Uganda’s Steven Bogere have three goals each.

The other quarter final matches in this FIFA sponsored tournament will see Eritrea face Zanzibar, while Tanzania take on Uganda Hippos and Burundi battle against Kenya.
