Uganda: Latest From Ugandan Foreign-Based Players

Kenyan Premier League

Today, Gor Mahia v Thika Tusker v City Stars Leopards v Chemilil

After narrowly missing the KPL title in 2010 and last season, Gor Mahia have vowed to win the coveted league today when the curtains of what has been a thrilling season will be closed.

And who can dispute them?

In Dan Serunkuuma, Gor Mahia will parade one of the league's joint top scorers with 17 goals in a fixture against Thika United that they simply have to win to lift the title.

Leaders Gor Mahia, second placed Tusker, and AFC Leopards are all in line to be crowned champions. Gor lead the standings with 58 points and are followed by Tusker (57) and Leopards (57).

But the real trophy will be placed at City Stadium where Serunkuma will try to inspire Gor Mahia to league glory.

Sserunkuma also inched closer to winning the top scorers' award with the hat trick he scored in a 4-0 win over Muhoroni.

His three well taken strikes increased his goals tally to 17, the same as Sofapaka's John Baraza.

In Sweden

Martin Kayongo Mutumba was an unused substitute as Swedish side AIK Stockholm overcame Dutch side PSV in the Europa League game on Thursday.

The stocky midfielder is expected to travel to Kampala sometime next week for the Cecafa.

In Iraq

Sula Matovu and Ivan Bukenya failed to script a new record as the first Ugandans to win a major championship in the Middle East after losing the AFC Asian Cup title to Al Kuwait SC in a 2-0 defeat.

In Portugal

Sunday Leixoes v Tondela

Luwagga Kizito continues to make impressive strides in Portugal despite Leixoes' disappointing stretch in recent weeks.

In his seven league appearances for Leixoes, Kizito started his 6th game of the season in the 1-1 draw away to Madeira despite being substituted with 13 minutes to play.

In Austria

Ibrahim Sekagya continues his rehabilitation after undergoing an operation on a troublesome knee.
