With St. Pauli up against Borussia Dortmund and HSV in January when the AFCON tournament kicks off, the absence of Daniel Kofi Kyereh is one that would leave a sour taste in the mouth of St. Pauli fans.

For the Ghana Black Stars, the 25-year-old made his official debut in the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium in September, 2021.

From the comments of the St. Pauli Sporting Director, one can safely assume that although Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac is yet to name his squad for the 2021 AFCON, Daniel Kofi Kyereh is one name that would feature.

I will select my own players - Coach Milo, Black Stars

Ghana Black Stars coach, Milovan Rajevac has said "he will select his own players" and not allow any outside influence in naming his AFCON squad, according to reports.

The 2021 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) is set to kick-off in less than a month, on January 9, 2022, and Ghana is yet to name it's official squad.
