FC PLATINUM have retained the core of their squad for the 2015 Caf Confederation Cup ahead of Wednesday’s deadline for registration of players.

While the leadership of the team was still busy on Tuesday hoping to make some last minute additions, notably Emmanuel Mandiranga from How Mine, 27 players had completed the registration process with the Zvishavane-based side.

Platinum has been drawn against Sofapaka of Kenya with the first leg set for the weekend of February 13-15 in Nairobi and the second leg two weeks later at Mandava.
