World Eleven FC beat Solifo Investment FC 2-0 in a mouth-watering clash to snatch their first victory on Tuesday in the ongoing Gunjur Nawetan championship at the biggest football arena - Gunjur Nyamina Football Field.

World Eleven came into the game after losing to Mighty Gamcel FC 2-1 in their opening group D clash last month and Solifo Investment FC came into the game after snatching a 2-0 win over Asselem FC in their first game. They both drew 1-1 with knockout champions Manchester United in their second group D game a fortnight ago.

The victory put World Eleven on the driving seat with 3 points in two games with two more games to play and Solifo Investment on the other hand need to win their remaining game to stand a better chance of reaching the quarterfinal.

Solifo Investment, who have collected 4 points in three outings, came into the game with the intention of snatching the maximum points but their efforts were dashed by the formidable defence line of World Eleven, who scored solid goals to collect the maximum points, which has put Solifo Investment in a funny situation in the group.

Late Ismaila FC have registered their first victory in the Nawetan after their hard fought 1-0 victory over embattled Jannehkoto FC in group C. The defeat has seen Jannehkoto FC out of the Nawetan, and they need to go back to the drawing board to prepare for the knockout.
