Yeni Malatyaspor striker Benjamin Tetteh has been handed a place in the starting XI by coach Milovan Rajevac at the expense of skipper Andre Ayew, as the Black Stars play Zimbabwe this afternoon.

Benjamin Tetteh made an impressive cameo last Saturday, helping the Stars secure a crucial 3-1 win over Zimbabwe to boost their chances of a place in Qatar next year.

The Turkey based striker replaced Jordan Ayew for his debut and will now replace brother and captain of the side Andre Ayew for the game this afternoon.

Andre Ayew now drops to the bench despite netting in the 3-1 win a couple of days ago.

He is among two players who have dropped to the bench, with Baba Iddrisu coming in to replace Fatawu in midfield.

Below is the Black Stars’ lineup to play Zimbabwe.
