Ghana coach Charles CK Akonnor has added Mubarak Wakaso and Jeffrey Schlupp in his starting line-up to face Sudan today in their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. Ghana is already on the top of the table and a win will go a long way to help boost the team’s chances in Group C.
Coach Charles CK Akonnor will also use two prolific strikers — Caleb Ekuban and captain Jordan Ayew in his starting team, serving his intention of attacking the opponent.
Surprisingly, central defender Nicholas Opoku will play from the right-back while Baba Rahman maintains his place at the left side of the defence.
John Boye and Alexander Djiku will also maintain their position at the centre of the defence while Wakaso will partner Afriyie Acquah in central midfield.
The Black Stars defeated Sudan 2-0 in their previous fixture played in Cape Coast last Thursday with Andre Ayew (captain of the side) scoring both goals in the game.
Black Stars starting line-up:
Lawrence Ati Zigi, Nicholas Opoku, Baba Rahman, John Boye, Alexander Djiku, Afriyie Acquah, Tarique Fosu Mubarak Wakaso, Caleb Ekuban, Jordan Ayew (c), Jeff Schlupp.
Well, Jordan Ayew serving as the captain for today’s game has sparked a controversial topic on the internet as some people think that Wakaso or John Boye who had their call-ups years before Jordan Ayew should have gotten the chance to captain the team.
