Jordan Ayew will captain the Black Stars today (Tuesday, November 17) against Sudan.
His brother and captain Dede Ayew picked up a muscle sprain after last week’s tie in Cape Coast.
First vice captain Thomas Partey is injured too while second vice captain Richard Ofori is suspended after picking up a yellow card in the game at Cape Coast.
As a result, head coach Charles Akonnor went with Jordan Ayew who will be starting his 64th match for the Black Stars in Omdurman.
Immediate candidates were Mubarak Wakaso, John Boye and Jordan Ayew who all have more than eight years experience under their belt.
Ayew has been a regular for the senior national team after making his debut in 2010 against Eswatini.
The Crystal Palace forward has scored 17 goals for the Black Stars and is 11th on the country’s all-time top scorers list.
