AFCON 2021 QUALIFIER: John Antwi, Waris missing as Akonnors names his maiden Black Stars squad

Religious goal scorer John Antwi and Strasbourg new boy Majeed Waris are the biggest casualties as Ghana new coach CK Akonnor names his maiden Black Stars squad for the 2021 AFCON Qualifier with Sudan.

Antwi who has hit top form in Egypt this season with Pyramids FC was expected to catch the attention of Akonnor but his efforts are yet to catch the attention of the new manager.

Despite hitting top form after joining Strasbourg a month ago, Waris has been scoring for the Ligue 1 side but has also been overlooked by Akonnor.

Six debutantes have been handed call ups into the team with Yahaya Mohammed, Habib Mohammed and Richard Attah leading the pack.

Below is Ghana’s 23-man squad for the AFCON Qualifier with Sudan on 27th March at the Cape Coast Stadium.

Goalkeepers: Richard Ofori, Richard Attah and Razak Abalora

Defenders: Kwadwo Amoako, Andy Yiadom, Gideon Mensah, Nicholas Opoku, Kasim Adams, Joseph Aidoo, Habib Mohammed

Midfielders: Mubarak Wakaso, Alfred Duncan, Baba Iddrssu, Thomas Partey, Kudus Mohammed, Christopher Antwi-Adjei, Tarique Fosu, Samuel Owusu, Andre Ayew

Forwards: Jordan Ayew, Richmond Boakye Yiadom, Eugene Ansah, Yahaya Mohammed
