There are few sur­prises in the Auck­land City FC line up trav­el­ling to Morocco for the FIFA World Club Chal­lenge. One ex­cep­tion was the nam­ing of Nige­rian striker Sanni Issa who has yet to make a com­pet­i­tive ap­pear­ance in a navy blue shirt. The for­ward won the OFC Cham­pi­ons League golden boot with Fiji’s Ba two sea­sons ago and last year turned out for ri­vals Ami­cale. The cam­paign kicks off on De­cem­ber 11 at 7.30am NZ time against Moroc­can cham­pi­ons Moghreb Ath­letic de Te­touan. Auck­land City FC faced Uzbek­istan in Dubai yes­ter­day in a warm-up match.
