Black Stars Coach Chris Hughton has named a strong 25-man squad to face Angola in the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Coach Chris Hughton named new face Patrick Kpozo, the abandoned Majeed Ashimeru and Joseph Wollacott in his 25-man squad for this month’s qualifiers against Angola.
The former Tottenham Hortspur Manager, who took charge of the team on February 12, 2023, has also included Edmund Addo of Spartak Subotica and Ransford Yeboah Königsdörffer. Also in the list are Majeed Ashimeru of Anderlecht and Joseph Painstil of Genk.
Ghana will play Angola in a double header this month in search of a ticket to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations slated for Cote D’Ivoire in January next year, 2024.
The Black Stars will host Palancras Negras at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Thursday, March 23, 2023 before travelling to Luanda on March 27, 2023 for the reverse fixture.
Ghana are joint top of the Group E table with 4 points from two games following a 3-0 win over Madagascar and a 1-1 draw with Central African Republic in June last year.
