Inaki Williams has dropped to the bench for Ghana’s final group game of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) against Mozambique.



Chris Hughton has named a familiar line-up for his side’s must-win game against the Mambas at the Alassane Ouattara Stadium.


Richard Ofori maintains his position between the sticks, with the back four of Denis Odoi, Gideon Mensah, Mohammed Salisu and Alexander Djiku also unchanged.


In midfield, Abdul Salis Samed takes his place as the anchor, while Majeed Ashimeru has recovered in time to also start alongside the Lensman.

Jordan Ayew also makes his third successive start at the 2023 AFCON after being deployed at left wing, with Joseph Paintsil also making a return to the starting line-up on the opposite flank.


West Ham United star Mohammed Kudus is once again tasked with being Ghana’s creative force and will be playing behind striker Antoine Semenyo.


Hughton’s side has failed to win any of their first two group matches after losing to Cape Verde and drawing against Egypt.


However, Ghana have an opportunity to make amends ahead of their crucial final Group B game against Mozambique on Monday evening.


A win would take the Black Stars to four points, which could just be enough to secure them second place or one of the best four third-place slots.
