Gyan, Andre Ayew Start For Black Stars Against Ethiopia

Captain Asamoah Gyan will be searching for his 50th goal for the senior national team on Sunday after he was named in the Black Stars starting line-up for the Afcon 2019 qualifier against Ethiopia in Kumasi.

Coach Kwesi Appiah, taking charge of his first competitive game since being reappointed also hands debuts to Lumor Agbenyenu, Thomas Agyepong and highly-rated striker Raphael Dwamena.

Andre Ayew retains his spot on the team but his brother Jordan has to make do with a place on the bench despite a decent AFCON and end to the season at Swansea.

John Boye and Daniel Amartey are the preferred central defensive partnership meaning Jonathan Mensah starts from the bench.

Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey anchors the Black Stars midfield while Richard Ofori gets the nod in goal ahead of Joseph Addo.
