Ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, Ghana have released the jersey numbers for their 23-man squad.
Captain and veteran striker Asamoah Gyan retains his iconic (and unusual, for a striker) number 3 jersey, while the number 10 has been assigned to vice-captain Andre Ayew and his younger brother Jordan has number 9.
Goalkeeper Brimah Razak has been given the number 1 jersey, but this by no means assures him of being first-choice, while youngsters Ebenezer Assifuah, Bernard Tekpetey and Ebenezer Ofori have been assigned the numbers 13, 14 and 15 respectively.
