Ghana coach Appiah names Kwadwo, Baba in starting line up to face Cameroon

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has caved in to the criticism of his selection by naming top stars Kwadwo Asamoah and Baba Rahman in his starting line up for Saturday's crucial 2019 Africa Cup of Nations clash with Cameroon.

But legendary striker Asamoah Gyan remains on the bench as is unimpressive left-back Lumor Agbenyenu.

The selection is part of the four changes the coach is making with injuries, poor form and suspension conspiring to lead to the changes.

Jonathan Mensah will come in for John Boye who was shown the read card in the previous match against Benin.

Injury means Kwadwo Asamoah will play in the place of Thomas Agyepong on the left wing with while Baba Rahman will play on the left side of the defence ahead of Lumor who was not top in the first form in match.
