The Crystal Palace striker has been named in Otto Addo’s starting line-up, but his senior brother Andre Ayew has been left on the bench.

Lawrence Ati-Zigi also returns between the sticks, while Patrick Kpozo, Jerome Opoku, Ernest Nuamah and Forson Amamkwah have also been handed starts against the Super Eagles.

Ghana seems to have deployed a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Ati-Zigi flanked by a back four of Alidu Seidu, Opoku, Edmund Addo and Kpozo.


Abdul Salis Samed and Baba Iddrisu will play as a double pivot, while debutant Forson Amankwah has been tasked with playing further upfront.

Jordan Ayew and Ernest Nuamah will occupy the left and right flanks, respectively, with Antoine Semenyo leading the line.
