The Confederations of African Football (CAF) has tasked Egyptian referees with the duty of overseeing the CAF Confederations Cup Group C tie between Al Hilal and Asante Kotoko slated for Al Hilal Stadium, on Sunday 3 February.

Mahmoud Zakaria Mohamed El Banna will be the center referee and is joined by compatriots Tahssen Abo El Sadat Bedyer and Youssef Wahid Youssef Elbosaty as first and second assistants respectively.

The 32-year-old earned his FIFA referee badge in 2014.

This crucial encounter is scheduled for 6 pm kickoff and Asante Kotoko, as a result, have begun training under the floodlights of the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi ahead of their trip beating Storm Academy 2-0 in the process.

The Porcupine Warriors will leave the shores of Ghana for Sudan on Thursday, January 31.
