Ghana vs Egypt qualifier -Ghana is to face Egypt later this month in the final Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier.
The Black Stars may have lost hope of qualifying for the tournament but this has not deterred coach Kwesi Appiah who has remained unsentimental with his formation.
Not minding what public reactions may be, Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has omitted Ayew brothers Andre and Jordan from his 23-man squad to face Egypt next month in the final Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier; and has recalled Deportivo Alaves ace Mubarak Wakaso.
The Black Stars manager decided to retain the squad which impressed against Uganda and Saudi Arabia early this month.
The squad which took on Uganda and Egypt in the world cup qualifier consisted mainly of some key Black Stars B players who played in the just concluded WAFU tournament where Ghana triumphantly secured a massive victory.
For the upcoming clash with Egypt, Kwesi Appiah maintained 90 percent of the players who were assembled for this month double assignments against Uganda and Saudi Arabia.
Captain Asamoah Gyan was included in the squad after missing two matches due to injury. For his remarkable display at the 5-1 victory in Brazzaville Congo, Norway-based Edwin Gyasi was recalled by coach Appiah.
The Black Stars will face the Pharaohs in Cape Coast on November 12, 2017, in a match which Kwesi Appiah is expected to use to further assess the development of the team, as Egypt has already secured the sole ticket to Russia from the group.
