Gor Mahia maintained their 100 per cent record, beating Telecom of Djibouti 3-1 at the National Stadium to finish top of the group with nine points.
An individual brilliance from George Odhiambo saw Gor Mahia go up on 12 minutes, before Michael Olunga scored the second to take his tally to four goals in the 28th minute.
In the second half, Telecom got a look in but saw their efforts thwarted by the Gor Mahia backline. They pushed harder until they scored through Anwar Sadat Ibrahim in the 74th minute.
Pressure increased on the Kenyans, who were strangely cheered on fans on Tanzanian outfit, Young Africans, who had turned up to support their side against Al Khartoum of Sudan in the other match later.
Gor Mahia sat back for nearly the entire half allowing Telecom to dominate possession and had to wait till the 77th minute when Enock Agwanda scored the third one with a long shot that hit the woodwork before he tapped in the rebound to make it 3-1.
In the second match, Khartoum suffered a lone goal loss to Young Africans, with Amisi Tambwe heading home the only goal on the half-hour mark.
“It’s been a tough game for us in front of our fans. Most of the key players were rested and it was a bit tense for us. We are looking forward to the quarter finals because there is still a long way to go” said Young Africans coach, Hans Van Der Pluijm.
