News From the Teams

Denkey has been in excellent scoring form for Cercle Brugge, and he should continue to spearhead the attack for Togo. In his previous 14 appearances for club and country, he has scored 10 goals and provided 10 assists.

His strike partner Placca, as well as Roger Aholou of Raja Club Athletic, may join him in the front two.

For the match on Sunday, Bubista has selected a 25-man roster, which includes Ryan Mendes of Fatih Karagumruk, who has earned 63 caps for his country.

Medes, Gilson Tavares, and 27-year-old winger Lisandro Semedo should lead the assault as Medes is also one goal away from breaking the Blue Sharks\’ record for most goals scored.

We anticipate a back four of Joao Paulo, Steve Furtado, Logan Costa, and Joao Correia at the other end of the field, with 37-year-old Vozinha starting in goal once more.
