CAF Champions League: Asante Kotoko fly out to Sudan to face Al Hilal
Asante Kotoko left Accra on Sunday morning to Sudan to face Al Hilal in their CAF Champions League final qualifying round decider.
Interim coach Johnson Smith has named a 20-man squad for the assignment which looks herculan on paper.
Kotoko will transit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia before connecting to Omdurman for the crucial examination.
The Porcupine Warriors travel to North African country on Sunday, hoping for a miracle to advance to the next stage of the competition.
They were beaten 1-0 by the Sudanese giants in Accra last month in the second round first leg fixture.
The 20-man squad does not include midfielder Mudasiru Salifu, who recently returned to training after recovering from injury.
Midfield duo Habib Mohammed and Emmanuel Keyekeh also failed to make the cut.
However, the likes of Muniru Sulley, Fabio Gama, Kwame Opoku, Razak Abalora, Emmanuel Gyamfi and Felix Annan are all in the squad.
