Wa All Stars captain Hafiz Adams has set sights on reaching the group stage of the 2017 Caf Champions League following the team’s triumph in the Ghana Premier League last season.

For the first time in the club's history, they will be participating in the continent's biggest club competition, when they welcome Libyan giants Al Ahli Tripoli to the Tamale Sports Stadium in the first leg of the preliminary round on Sunday.

The 24-year-old is upbeat over their chances of going past their opponents. The return fixture will take place a week later in Tripoli.
