The biggest dream of the Black Stars is to end their AFCON trophy drought.
Ghanaians will be happy to see the Black Stars bringing home the trophy from the upcoming TotalEnergies African Cup of Nations in Cameroon hence the coach, Milovan Rajevac will be hoping to find a solution for the errors in the team.
With no doubt, Jordan Ayew, Andre Ayew, Thomas Partey, Daniel Amartey, Mubarak Wakaso, Kudus Mohammed, Alexander Djiku, Baba Abdul Rahman and some experience players will maintain their playing role in the team.
Per sources and reports, Kelvin Prince Boateng who currently play as a midfielder for Hertha Berlin in the German Bundesliga is likely to hand a call up for the AFCON tournament.
Boateng switched his allegiance to Ghana in May 2010 and made his first appearance for the Black Stars at the Accra Sports Stadium in Greater Accra prior to the 2010 World Cup in a 1–0 victory over Latvia in June 2010 under the current manager of the Black Stars and also participated at the 2010 World Cup staged South Africa.
He stayed with team until 2014, and lost his call up due to some misunderstanding during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. Since then, Boateng has not been handed a call up into the team. He has played for nine different clubs after the 2014 mundial including Barcelona in Spain and currently playing an active football in the German football. The 34-year old forward is likely to return back to the national team ahead of the AFCON.
Jordan Mintah (Terengganu-Malaysia), Salisu Mohammed (Southampton-England), Issah Abass (Rijeka-Croatia), Yaw Yeboah are all likely to earn a call up for the AFCON.
Jordan Mintah who is nicknamed ‘Goal Machine’ is still producing the goals for his club in the Malaysian League.
The knack striker won the ‘Golden Boot’ last season with Malaysian side Terengganu FC II as he scored 16 goals in 12 games for his side helping him to be the ‘Top Scorer’ of the just ended Premier League in Malaysia and scored more than five goals in the Malaysian FA Cup.
A reliable source indicates that the Ghana FA is working hard to snatch the England-based Ghanaian, Salisu Mohammed who plays as a center back for Southampton. Salisu has become one of the top Ghanaian players in the EPL and also playing a key role in every single game for Southampton.
Polish-based Wisła Kraków winger, Yaw Yeboah is also likely to make a return into the national team. The former Black Meteors captain played four games in the just ended World Cup qualifiers for Ghana. He last played for the nation during their double header against Zimbabwe. The 24-year-old is playing a pivotal role with a splendid performance in the Polish league.
Finally, Ex-Ghana U23 playmaker, Issah Abass who plays as a forward for Prva HNL club Rijeka, on loan from Bundesliga club Mainz 05 is likely to hand a call up for his first Black Stars call up. The 23-years old prolific striker has scored seven goals in the Croatian HNL League this season.
