Black Stars Head Coach C.K Akonnor has made five changes to the squad for this afternoon’s AFCON qualifier against Sudan.
Alexander Djiku will start at the right side of the defence, while Chelsea’s Abdul Baba Rahman is deployed at the left side of the defence. Experienced John Boye will partner Nicholas Opoku in the heart of defence to complete the back four.
Ghana has kept a 100% record in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers so far, winning all three games they’ve played so far and leads group C with 9 points, followed by South Africa also with 9 points in 4 games.
Jefferey Schlupp and Mubarak Wakaso who missed the first leg in Cape Coast will start against the North Africans this afternoon.
Legon Cities goalkeeper Fatau Dauda will start in post for Ghana. He replaces Richard Ofori who is suspended for the game.
In midfield, Mubarak Wakaso has been drafted in to start ahead of Emmanuel Lomotey. The Jiangsu Sunning player will partner Afriyie Acquah in the heart of the pitch.
In attack, Caleb Ekuban will play behind lead striker Jordan Ayew while Tarique Fosu and Jeffery Schlupp operate on the wings.
