Ghanaians on social media have however reacted to the removal of the captain,Andre Ayew from the first eleven black stars players to meet Zimbabwe.
“He just want the captain to read the game from the bench as a veteran”, Wilson Kofi Mensah Attitoe commented.
“11years ago Milovan Rajevac relegated Captain Stephen Appiah to the bench ,and gave the young ones like Dede Ayew the Opportunity.
Roles have been reversed and appears it’s time for Ghana’s captain to make same sacrifices under the same man!” George Addo Jnr of Joysports stated.
As for me, three points, please. Whether we play well or badly. Three points.
Best of luck to them!” Gary Al Smith.
