Andre Ayew to captain Ghana's Black Stars against Ethiopia

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has named a strong starting line up that includes Andre and his younger brother Jordan Ayew for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia on Sunday afternoon.

The Ayews, who returned to the squad after over a year absence, are starting the must-win clash in Addis Ababa.

Meanwhile, Kwesi Appiah has opted to leave captain Asamoah Gyan on the bench, giving his position to talented young striker Emmanuel Boateng, who plays for Levante in Spain.

What it means is that Andre Ayew will be the captain of the side today.

Here's Ghana line-up for the game.
