Kotoko host Sundowns on Sunday

Kumasi Asante Kotoko will on Sunday host South African Premier League side, Mamelodi Sundowns at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium.

Sundowns are in Ghana on a training tour which has already seen them play Hearts of Oak in a game that ended 1-1 at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium on Wednesday.

Days before that game, players and officials of the respected South African side were spotted at the stadium during the MTN FA Cup final between Kotoko and Medeama.

They are expected in Kumasi this weekend to also test their strength against the Porcupine Warriors who have had a busy season, competing in three competitions.

Although a non-competitive game, the clash promises to be exciting as it will be the first time in a little over a decade since Kotoko played a PSL team from the rainbow nation. The last time was in 2002 when the fabulous club eliminated Santos FC in the CAF Cup Winners Cup.

Kotoko drew 3-3 away and beat Santos 1-0 at home courtesy a late minute strike by Joe Louis
