Kenya/Sudan: Sudan Hits Kenya in U23 Afcon Qualifier

Nairobi — Red hot Al Hilal forward Waleed Bakhiet scored twice as hosts Sudan beat Kenya's Emmerging Stars 2-0 in the first leg of the African Under-23 Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier in Khartoum on Wednesday night.

Bakhiet scored a goal in either half as the Sudanese took a huge advantage ahead of next week's return leg at the Moi Sports Centre Kasarani on Tuesday.

The Francis Kimanzi coached team will need to win the game by a margin of three clear goals to progress to the final round of qualification where a meeting between either Nigeria or Libya awaits.

The AFCON Under-23 will also be used as a qualification tournament for next year's Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.
