Abdul Fatawu Issahaku Ghana 2021
The Black Stars' starting side for their final group game at the Africa Cup of Nations has been announced

  • Joseph Jojo Wollacott Ghana

    GOALKEEPER - Jojo Wallocott

    The Swindon Town goalkeeper continues his reign as Ghana’s No.1 against Comoros.

  • Ghana defender Andy Yiadom and Benin's Steve Mounie during the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations

    RIGHT-BACK - Andy Yiadom

    There were rumours the Reading right-back would miss Tuesday’s game over fitness issues but that has turned out to be false.

  • Baba Rahman Percy Tau Ghana vs South Africa

    LEFT-BACK - Abdul Rahman Baba

    Reading left-back Baba will hope to add a bit more offensive bite to his game as he has been selected in the line-up for the upcoming game.

  • Daniel Amartey Ghana

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Daniel Amartey

    Central defender Amartey is undoubtedly a lock in coach Milovan Rajevac’s first XI after making the roster once again.

  • Alexander Djiku Ghana

    CENTRAL DEFENDER - Alexander Djiku

    The Strasbourg man has another opportunity to impress as he has done in his two previous central defensive appearances at the tournament so far.

  • Thomas Partey Ghana

    DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER - Thomas Partey

    Arsenal’s Partey has been handed a bit more defensive duty against Comoros, as he has at club level, owing to the absence of injured Iddrisu Baba.

  • Daniel-Kofi Kyereh Ghana

    ATTACKING MIDFIELDER - Daniel-Kofi Kyere

    Kyereh made his first start in the 1-1 draw with Gabon on Tuesday and looks to have done enough to earn himself another go in the first XI.

  • Abdul Fatawu Issahaku Ghana

    RIGHT WINGER - Abdul Fatawu Issahaku

    Seventeen-year-old sensation Issahaku finally makes his way into the starting team – at right wing – after a lot of public clamour for his inclusion.

  • Kamaldeen Sulemana Stade Rennes 2021-22

    LEFT WINGER - Kamaldeen Sulemana

    Kamaldeen has been perhaps Ghana’s poorest player in Cameroon, but coach Rajevac apparently thinks otherwise, having named the youngster in his starting team once again.

  • Andre Ayew Ghana Marseille

    SUPPORT STRIKER - Andre Ayew

    Andre scored against Gabon and a lot more will be expected from him as he takes to the pitch again on Tuesday.

  • Jordan Ayew Ghana Guinea Bissau

    FORWARD - Jordan Ayew

    Owing to a tactical switch, Jordan makes a return to the lead striker position from right wing amid a lot of expectations.
