Two times AFCON winner and former Assistant coach of the Black Stars, Herve Renard has named six Ghanaian players in his all-time best eleven players on the African continent.

The Frenchman was a second assistant coach under fellow countryman Claude Le Roy during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations hosted here in Ghana.

Crystal Palace ace Jordan Ayew also made it to the bench of Herve Renard's dream Africa team.
