REVEALED: Milovan Rajevac rings changes in Ghana starting line up to face Gabon


The Serbian has opted to make some changes in his starting team that will face the Panthers in the make or break

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has opted to make some few changes in his squad that will face Gabon in Group C fixture of 2021 Africa Cup of Nations on Friday.

The Serbian is under pressure to grind results this time around after a poor start to the tournament.

Swindon Town goalkeeper Jojo Wollacot will maintain his place in post while the four defenders -Andy Yiadom, Baba Rahman, Alexander Djiku and Daniel Amartey- that started against Morocco will also play part of today’s game.

However, Joseph Paintsil is expected to start from the bench despite his fine performance against Morocco as Milovan seek to make some tactical changes.

Jordan Ayew who started as the lone striker against Morocco will now switch to the right wing to take over Paintsil’s place while Andre Ayew lead the attack as a false number nine.

Kamaldeen Sulemana will play from left wing like he did against Morocco while Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey and Baba Iddrisu take charge of the defensive midfield role.

St. Pauli midfielder Daniel Kofi Kyereh is expected to start his first game of the tournament by playing behind Andre Ayew.

Ghana are in dire need of three points in order to stand a realistic chance of qualifying to the next stage of the competition.

The kick off is 7pm.

Black Stars probable XI:

Jojo Wollacot, Andy Yiadom, Baba Rahman, Alexander Djiku, Daniel Amartey, Baba Iddrisu, Thomas Partey, Jordan Ayew, Kamaldeen Sulemana, Daniel Kofi Kyereh, Andre Ayew
