Coach Kwesi Appiah has dropped Swansea City attacker Jordan Ayew and his brother Andre Ayew from Ghana’s squad to face Uganda in next month’s World Cup qualifier, Ghanasportsonline.com has learnt.
The pair are reportedly not part of the team with his place being occupied by Richmond Boakye-Yiadom who scored a brace against Congo.
No reason has been given as to what led to the Ayews purported exclusion from the team.
The two (Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew) for some time now have been unable to live up to expectation in the National team.
The brothers missed Ghana’s World Cup qualifier against Congo in Brazzaville due to a stomach bug and a thigh injury.
Ghanasportsonline.com’s sources also indicate Switzerland-based Raphael Dwamena who was excused from the team’s last game against Congo is set for a return.
Former Ghana U20 defender Daniel Opare is also in line for a return to the Black Stars team having last played in 2014.
Kwesi Appiah is expected to release his team in the next few days ahead of next month’s crucial game at the Mandala Stadium in Kampala.
The Black Stars must beat Uganda and hope for a favorable result in the game between Egypt and Congo to enhance their chances of making it to the World Cup.
Ghana is third with 5 points in Group E, 4 points behind leaders Egypt and 2 adrift second place Uganda.
