In a significant lineup change, Black Stars captain Andre Dede Ayew is set to make his return as Chris Hughton reveals the squad to face Comoros in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. This adjustment comes as Ayew steps in to replace Kudus Mohammed, who was sidelined on Monday due to a back injury.
The Le Harve forward is one of three changes made by the coach, following their victorious encounter against Madagascar last Friday in Kumasi. Kasim Nuhu Adams is set to replace the injured Daniel Amartey, while Denis Odoi will take the place of Alidu Seidu in the lineup.
Goalkeeper Richard Ofori retains his position, guarding the net behind a solid back four consisting of Nuhu and Nicholas Opoku as the central pair, with Odoi as the right-back and Gideon Mensah on the left.
In Hughton’s preferred 4-2-3-1 system, Salis Samed and Baba Iddrisu will form the double pivot. The attacking flanks will see Inaki Williams and Jordan Ayew, with Antoine Semenyo leading the line and Dede Ayew in a playmaking role behind him.
The much-anticipated match is scheduled to kick off at 16:00 GMT at the Stade de Moroni, where the Black Stars aim to secure a crucial victory in their quest for qualification in the World Cup. Ghanaian football enthusiasts will be closely watching as the team strives for success under the leadership of the seasoned captain, Andre Dede Ayew.
