Al-Hilal Omdurman were officially recognized by Confederation of African football on Thursday afternoon as the team that qualified to the 2020/21 Champions League group stage after their opponents – Asante Kotoko – failed to raised the minimum of 15 players for Wednesday second leg.
Asante Kotoko were informed eight of their players had tested positive for the Covid-19 two hours before kick-off but the Ghanaian side challenged the authenticity of the PCR test results and lodged a complaint with CAF via the Ghana Football Association.
The Porcupine Warriors were hopeful for a replay to be ordered by the governing body of football on the continent but their expectations have not been met.
CAF official website announced and confirmed the full lists of sixteen clubs to contest this season’s prestigious CAF Champions League group stage and Hilal are present. Kotoko eliminated.
