Coach Avram Grant has opted to pair Ayew brothers – Andre and Jordan as front men in Ghana’s starting XI for the penultimate Afcon 2017 qualifying game against Mauritius.
The Black Stars who are looking to consolidate their lead of Group H after three wins and a draw in previous games face another task to keep their unbeaten record against the ‘Club M’ at the Stade Anjalay.
Stand-in captain Andre Ayew after missing the last game against Mozambique to injury is back in the starting XI and has been preferred to pair his younger brother Jordan ahead of Ebenezer Assifuah and the recently invited Patrick Twumasi.
Grant keeps his faith in Spain-based goalkeeper Razak Brimah to man the post with Harrison Afful, Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah and John Boye filling up the spaces in defense.
Mubarak Wakaso and Afriyie Acquah continue their combination of holding the fort centrally in midfield while Christian Atsu and Frank Acheampong take to the flanks.
Ghana Starting XI:
Razak Brimah – Harrison Afful, Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah, John Boye -Mubarak Wakaso, Afriyie Acquah, Christian Atsu, Frank Acheampong – Andre Ayew (c), Jordan Ayew
