Kenya bagged Silver and Bronze on the first day of the 2014 IAAF World Junior Championships in Oregon USA.

Uganda’s Joshua Cheptegei denied Kenya her first gold in the championship after winning the 10,000m race in 28 minutes 32.86 seconds.

Kenya’s Elvis Kipchoge Cheboi came in second clocking 28 minutes 35.20 seconds while compatriot Nicholas Mboroto Kosimbei settled for third position.

Meanwhile Algerian international Yacine Brahimi, who helped his country reach the second round at the World Cup, has joined Porto from Granada in a 6.5 million Euros deal.

The 24-year-old midfielder has signed a five-year contract.

French-born Brahimi scored for Algeria in their 4-2 win over South Korea in Porto Alegre.

He also netted the winner in a shock Spanish La Liga victory for lowly Granada over Barcelona in April.
