GFA sends goodwill messages to Hearts, Kotoko

Listen to article

Accra, Nov. 11, GNA - The Management Board of the Ghana Football Association has sent goodwill messages to Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko as they take on El-Hilal of Sudan and Cottonsport Garoua of Cameroon respectively in the final group matches of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Kotoko play their Sudanese counterparts at the Kumasi Sports Stadium on Saturday while Hearts engage the Cameroonians on Sunday at the Accra Sports Stadium.

A statement issued on Thursday admonished the playing body to be well focused and disciplined on the field of play "as we expect nothing but total victory at the end of the respective matches." Cotonsport must avoid defeat against Hearts of Oak to win Group B while Sable Batie of Cameroon and Santos of South Africa play for pride in Douala.

But Group A is more complex with joint leaders Enugu Rangers of Nigeria and Al-Hilal of Sudan and Asante Kotoko of Ghana, two points adrift, in contention for a ticket to the two-leg decider. Bottom-of-the-table Petro Atletico of Angola have a score to settle with Enugu in Luanda after a 4-0 thrashing in Nigeria while Kotoko are also on a revenge mission in Kumasi having lost 2-0 away to Hilal.
