The Ghana Football Association has urged Aduana Stars to defeat Algerian side ES Setif in the last round of the qualifying stage of this year’s CAF Champions League.
The Fire Boys wil square off against 8th-time Algerian champions at the refurbished Nana Agyemang Badu II Park in the final qualifying stage of this year’s CAF Champions League.
The Ghana Premier League champions defeated Libyan side Al Tahaddy 2-1 on aggregate in the first round of the competition, and ahead of the much anticipated clash, the nation’s football governing body who had already supported the team with $30,000, has called on them to replicate the success of the first round.
“On behalf of the President and the Executive Committee of the Ghana Football Association, please accept our sincerest congratulations on your success in the preliminary matches which has guaranteed your Club’s qualification to the next stage of the CAF Total Champions League.”
“We have no doubt in our minds that this success will be repeated come Wednesday March 7, 2018 (home encounter) and that of your away game in Algeria”.
“As the sole representative of Ghana, the whole nation will be solidly behind you. We appreciate your hard work and commitment to showcase our brand of football to Africa and the rest of the world”.
“Go Aduana Stars, Go Ogya boys”, the GFA said in a statement signed by its General Secretary Mr. Isaac Addo.
Aduana Stars will progress to the group stages if they beat Setif on a two legged affair.
