Afful suspended for Champions League final

Ghana defender Harrison Afful is suspended for the second leg clash of the CAF Champions League final.

The 26-year-old picked up a yellow card in Esperance’s 1-1 draw away to Al Ahly in the first leg game on Sunday.

The 55th minute booking now sees Afful suspended for the second leg match for accumulated cautions.

The Ghana international picked up a yellow card in last month’s semi final match against TP Mazembe.

This means the ex Asante Kotoko defender will not be playing in his third straight Champions League final in a fortnight in Tunis.

Afful’s solitary strike won the African Cup for the Tunisian club last season.
