Kotoko will be without influential midfielder Michael Anaba for their return fixture of the CAF Champions League against Sony ela Nguema this weekend.
The 18-year-old has been included in the 24-man Ghana Under-20 squad expected to fly out to Italy and Spain for a 11-day training tour in preparations for the 2013 African Youth Championship.
Kotoko have agreed to released the player for the national duty, meaning he will be unavailable for the return leg in Malabo.
Kotoko have virtually secured their qualification to the next stage of the competition after hammering their opponent side 7-0 in the first leg.
The ex-Windy Professionals impressive enforcer was on target in the heavy win at the Baba Yara stadium.
Goalkeeper Felix Annan will also miss the tie for the same reasons
