GOAL predicts the Black Stars' likely starting line-up for their final group match at the Africa Cup of Nations against the Coelacanths on Tuesday

  • Alexander Djiku, Jojo Wallocott, Thomas Partey Ghana

    GOALKEEPER - Jojo Wallocott

    The Swindon Town goalkeeper has conceded twice at Afcon but he is hardly to blame for any of the goals and is therefore set to start one more time against Comoros.


  • Andy Yiadom Ghana

    RIGHT-BACK - Andy Yiadom

    Reading right-back Yiadom has been criticised for his lack of offensive action but he is nonetheless expected to make the first XI again.

  • Baba Rahman Percy Tau Ghana vs South Africa

    LEFT-BACK - Abdul Rahman Baba

    Chelsea player Baba is tipped to start at left-back on Tuesday, as he has done in the Black Stars’ opening two games.

  • Daniel Amartey Ghana

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Daniel Amartey

    Amartey has had a good tournament in Cameroon so far, and it will come as a surprise should he lose his place at centre-back.

  • Alexander Djiku Ghana

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Alexander Djiku

    The Strasbourg man has impressed enough to maintain his spot as Amartey’s central defensive partner.

  • Edmund Addo Sheriff Tiraspol 2021-22

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Edmund Addo

    Real Mallorca midfielder Mohammed Iddrisu Baba is confirmed out of the Comoros clash after suffering a hamstring injury against Gabon on Monday. His absence opens up a possible place for Sheriff Tiraspol ace Addo.

  • Thomas Partey Ghana

    CENTRAL MIDFIELDER - Thomas Partey

    Despite failing to impress in Ghana’s opening two games, Partey’s presence in Ghana’s line-up is not expected to change.


  • Daniel-Kofi Kyereh Ghana

    LEFT FORWARD - Daniel-Kofi Kyereh

    Paintsil has given a good account of himself in Ghana’s last two games and is expected to be rewarded with another start on Friday.

  • Jordan Ayew Ghana

    CENTRE FORWARD - Jordan Ayew

    Crystal Palace striker Jordan will likely start on the right wing for the Black Stars as he did in the last game, after failing to impress up top in the opening match against Morocco.

  • Kamaldeen Sulemana Ghana

    RIGHT FORWARD - Kamaldeen Sulemana

    The Stade Rennes sensation has been one of Ghana’s poorest players in Cameroon, but it remains to be seen if his left-wing position will be taken away from him.

  • Andre Ayew Ghana South Africa

    SUPPORT STRIKER - Andre Ayew

    Ayew netted a sublime effort against Gabon and if for nothing at all, that alone almost certainly guarantees him another chance as lead striker.
