Al Ahly have named an extended 28-man squad for the CAF Champions League final this coming weekend.
The reigning African champions will chase a record-extending 10th continental crown when they face South Africa’s Kaizer Chiefs at the Stade Mohamed V in Casablanca on the evening of Saturday 17 July.
