C.K Akonnor retained Andre Ayew as captain of the Black Stars, with Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey and goalkeeper Richard Ofori appointed as his deputies.

Public opinion has been divided especially with his selection of his vice captains, with fans of the Black Stars opting for Mubarak Wakaso.

However, Nii Odartey Lamptey believes the decision of the coach was the best and came at the right time.

"I think we've learnt as a Nation, and it's the right decision and a right time for Coach CK Akonnor to choose his captains before tournament," he told Ahomka FM.
