The following is a list of prospective Black Stars lineups that coach Otto Addo could deploy in tonight’s rivalry match against Nigeria’s Super Eagles in Kumasi:
Goal Keeper- Wollacot
Despite failing to keep a clean sheet on his debut for Ghana’s Black Stars at the AFCON 2021, Jojo Wollacot is the favorite to keep his job.
Defender- Daniel Amartey
Daniel Amartey, a defender for Leicester City in the English Premier League, is expected to captain the defense.
Defender- Alexander Djiku
Alexander Djiku, who has been in excellent form for FC Strasbourg in French League 1, will partner Daniel Amartey in the center of the defense.
Defender- Dennis Odoi
Dennis Odoi, a Ghanaian defender who plays for FC Brugge, is expected to start ahead of Andy Yiadom due to his defensive qualities and capabilities.
Defender- Dennis Korsah
Dennis Korsah, a smart left-footed defensive and offensive player, will be an advantage in neutralizing Nigeria’s attacking threats due to his power.
Midfielder- Baba Iddrisu
Baba Iddrisu of RCD Mallorca, who represented the Stars in the AFCON, might make a huge impact on Otto Addo’s team.
Midfielder- Thomas Partey
Partey is expected to lead the club in today’s game, and Otto Addo cannot disregard his brilliance in midfield for the Black Stars.
Midfielder- Elisha Owusu
Since Edmund Addo and Daniel Kofi Kyereh have been ruled out of the game owing to injuries, midfielder Elisha Owusu, who has earned his first call up for this match, could be an option for Otto Addo.
Midfielder- Mohammed Kudus
Mohammed Kudus, who missed the AFCON in 2021 due to injury, has returned to the team, and his skills will be needed now that Andre Ayew, the Ghanaian captain, has been suspended.
Forward- Jordan Ayew
Together with Gyan, the Crystal Palace winger might spearhead the attack. Otto Addo will require his excellent ball-controlling talents.
Forward- Afenya Gyan
As Roman’s sensational teen, Afenya Gyan, with his sharp shooting talents, might be put upfront with Ayew as the Black Stars seek a crucial home victory.
