GPL Preview: All Stars vs Wafa – Tough battle for the Academy boys

Wa All Stars will face fellow MTN FA Cup quarter-finalists West Africa Football Academy in Wa in what is expected to be a thrilling contest.

The hosts easily romped past second tier side Wamanafo Mighty Royals with a 6-0 scoreline to progress to the last eight.

Abdul Ganiu Ismail, Richard Arthur and goalkeeper Richard Ofori have returned to Wa to be available for selection.

WAFA also made their way through to the MTN FA Cup quarters when they edged third tier Emmanuel FC narrowly at the Sogakope park last Friday.

Samuel Tetteh returns to the squad ahead of the trip to Wa after an international assignment with the local national team.

Majeed Ashimeru underwent a successful knee surgery in Belgium which rules him out of action for close to seven weeks.
