Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has made a single change to his starting line-up that faced Morocco on Monday as the Black Stars take on the Panthers of Gabon at the 2021 AFCON Group C clash.
The 68-year-old has dropped Belgium-based midfielder Joseph Paintsil from the starting XI and has handed a berth to St Pauli offensive midfielder Daniel-Kofi Kyereh.
Paintsil, who plies his trade with Genk in Belgium, scored high marks against Morocco as he made his maiden appearance at the tournament.
But, the former Qatar coach has opted to drop him from the starting XI and introduce Daniel-Kofi Kyereh who has 5 goals and 9 assists in 18 outings for St Pauli in the Bundesliga II this season.
Below is Ghana’s starting XI to face Gabon.
Joseph Wollacott – Andy Yiadom, Baba Rahman, Alexander Djiku, Daniel Amartey – Baba Iddrisu Mohammed, Thomas Partey, Jordan Ayew, Kamaldeen Sulemana – Daniel-Kofi Kyereh, Andre Ayew.
Ghana suffered a 1-0 loss to Morocco in the opening game of the tournament in Yaounde but, are fired up to go for victory against Gabon on Friday evening.
