Ghana-Tunisia: Lineup

Ghana makes changes as Kwarasey returns for Tunisia friendly

Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey returns to the post for Ghana in their pre-Africa Cup of Nations friendly against Tunisia in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

The goalkeeper is one of the eight changes made by Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah to his previous starting line-up that defeated Egypt 3-0 on Thursday in their first warm-up match.

Isaac Vorsah and Jonathan Mensah are paired in central defence as John Paintsil slots in at right-back with Kwadwo Asamoah retaining his place at the left-back position.

Derek Boateng will partner Rabiu Mohammed in midfield with Solomon Asante and Christian Atsu starting on the wings.

Mubarak Wakaso starts again for the Black Stars and he will play behind striker Richmond Boakye Yiadom

The match against the Carthage Eagles is the last before the team heads for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations finals in South Africa.

Starting line-up:

Adam Kwarasey, John Paintsil, Kwadwo Asamoah, Isaac Vorsah, Jonathan Mensah, Derek Boateng, Solomon Asante, Rabiu Mohammed, Richmond Boakye Yiadom, Mubarak Wakaso, Christian Atsu.
