Kenyan Premier League giants Gor Mahia will leave the country on Wednesday morning to Egypt ahead of their CAF Confederation’s Cup tie against Sudan’s Al Ahly Merowe.
The game was set to be played in Sudan but CAF moved it to Egypt due to a lack of certified pitches in the nation; the match is set for Friday 15 October.
Gor will be travelling to Egypt with a contingent of 17 players owing to the ban they received from FIFA after failing to pay their former player Owusu. Of the 17, none is a new signing bar youngster John Nyawir who was promoted from the club’s junior side.
Gor Mahia who were given a bye in the preliminary round will be against a Sudanese outfit who dispatched their neighbors Atlabara of South Sudan in the first preliminary round by a 4-0 aggregate win, winning 2-0 in each leg to sail into the next round.
Another Kenyan representative in the continental tournaments Tusker FC will be tackling Egyptian giants Zamalek in the first round of Champions League a day later in Nairobi before the return leg in a fortnight.
