Jordan Ayew To Captain The Black Stars Against Sudan

Black Stars striker Jordan Ayew

Jordan Ayew will captain the Black Stars against Sudan today, in the second leg of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021 qualifier.

He was appointed by the head coach, C.K Akonnor to captain the team due to the unavailability of the three captains of the senior national team – Andre Ayew, Thomas Partey and Richard Ofori.

Thomas Partey did not travel with the squad due to an injury he picked in Arsenal’s 3-0 loss to Aston Villa in the Premier League.

Andre Ayew, who scored two goals against Sudan in Cape Coast last Thursday, picked up a muscle strain during training.

Richard Ofori, however, is suspended after picking up a yellow card in the first leg of the fixture.

The game will kickoff at 1 pm at the Al-Hilal Stadium in Omdurman, Sudan.
