Augustine Okrah wins Sudanese Premier League with Al Hilal

Augustine Okrah and his Al Hilal side were crowned champions of the Sudanese Premier League on Saturday with a two-point difference after the derby win over Al Merreikh.

The former Ghana Premier League goal king and MVP was an unused substitute as they recorded a 2-0 win at home.

Okrah was celebrating a second league title in the Sudanese top-flight since moving to North African country three years ago.

His first was with Al Merreikh in 2015.

Despite the success, this has been a poor season for the one-time Sudanese Premier League goal king.

He posted on his Twitter page: ''Very grateful to God almighty first, and the entire technical team, my teammates and the vociferous supporters for a successful season.

''We've been able to win the Sudanese Premier League title after the victory over Al Merriekh.

''This is my second league title in Sudan and hope????.''
