Ghana have announced their squad for next month’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifies against South Africa and São Tomé and Príncipe respectively.
The Black Stars will host Bafana Bafana on the 14th of November before travelling to Ponta da Mina to take on São Tomé in a Group C clash four days later.
Both Andre and Jordan Ayew were named in the squad while the midfield pair of Thomas Partey and Alfred Duncan are sure to bring the very best out of Molefi Ntseki’s troops.
The Ayew brothers have been in particularly good form of late with Jordan finding the back of the net for Crystal Palace away to Arsenal this past weekend, while Andre has put in a succession of man-of-the-match performance for Swansea City in their push for Premier League promotion.
Richard Ofori, who has kept three clean sheets in succession for Maritzburg United, is the only South African-based player in the squad.
Goalkeepers: Richard Ofori (Maritzburg FC, South Africa), Felix Annan (Asante Kotoko, Ghana), Razak Abalora (Azam FC, Tanzania)
Defenders: Andy Yiadom (Reading, England), Harrison Afful (Columbus Crew, USA), Lumor Agbenyenu (Real Mallorca, Spain), Joseph Aidoo (Celta Vigo, Spain), Kassim Nuhu (Fortuna Dusseldorf, Germany), Nicholas Opoku (Udinese, Italy), Mohammed Salisu (Real Valladolid, Spain)
Midfielders: Samuel Owusu (Al Fahya, Saudi Arabia), Thomas Partey (Atletico Madrid, Spain), Alfred Duncan (Sassuolo, Italy), Mubarak Wakaso (Deportivo Alaves, Spain), Iddrisu Baba (Real Mallorca, Spain), Christopher Antwi-Adjei (SC Paderborn, Germany)
Forwards: Andre Ayew (Swansea, England), Mohammed Kudus (FC Nordsjaelland, Denmark), Emmanuel Boateng (Dalian Yifang, China), Jordan Ayew (Crystal Palace, England), Torric Jibril (TP Mazembe, DR Congo), Shafiu Mumuni (Ashantigold).
