Coach Kwesi Appiah has been forced to make changes to his initial 21-man squad due to injuries sustained by some players while on club assignments.

Ghana lost the services of experienced defender John Boye and TSG Hoffenheim’s defender Kassim Nuhu – the duo picked up injuries while playing for their respective clubs.

The Black Stars are hoping to continue from where they left off in their 5-0 win against Ethiopia in the opening game of the qualifiers.
