Yikpe and Afiriyie will be available for CAF CL

If Gor Mahia beat Aigle Noir of Burundi next weekend, they will have the services of the foreign duo of Francis Afiriyie and Yikpe Ghislain. The Ghanaian and Ivorian duo are not available for the opening round but will be eligible should Gor Mahia proceed to round one.

“According to the latest communication we have received from CAF, the two strikers may be allowed to play after the Sunday match ahead of us. This will be a big boost to us,’’ explained Ngala to Citizen Sports.

The winner between Gor Mahia and Aigle Noir will likely face USM Alger in the first round. The Algerian side won the opening leg 2-1 away to Nigerien side AS Sonindep.

“We are ready for the Burundians and our plans started yesterday with our first trophy of the season,  we are building on the players dedication and determination to go places this season,’’ Ngala continued.

Gor Mahia sign Ghanaian Francis Afriyie

In a bid to strengthen their attack for the 2019-2020 Africa Champions League, Kogalo have signed Ghanaian attacker Francis Afriyie.

The 24 year old recently played for Murcielagos  in the Mexican top tier. He made 9 appearances and scored two goals. He previously was in the squad for Vojvodina in the Serbian league though he did not play. Prior to that he played for Bechem in the Ghanaian league.

He is the second Ghanaian to play for Kogalo after Taofiq Zakari who joined Gor Mahia in 2015 but only appeared in friendlies.
