Caf CC: Aduana travel for Fosa Juniors reverse with 16 players

Ghana’s sole representatives, Aduana Stars left Accra Sunday night with 16 players for their Confederation Cup playoffs second leg against Fosa Juniors in Madagascar.

The league champions boarded a Kenyan Airways flight and are expected to touch down their destination in time for the match set for Wednesday, April 18.

Per the 16-man squad decided by head coach Yusif Abubakar, Aduana embarked on their trip with two goalkeepers, six defenders, five midfielders and three strikers.

Centre-back Paul Aidoo who started the first leg in Dormaa as well as right-back Hafiz Adams could not claim a place in the travelling team.

It will have referees from Comoros led by Ali Mohamed Adelaid controlling affairs.
