A lot of news has been popping up regarding the anticipated encounter between Ghana and Brazil such as the availability of players, injury concerns and others.
Most important of all – the starting lineup as many suggestions have been raised by concerned citizens and sports panellists – and on such accord, here is how the Black Stars of Ghana led by Otto Addo will name his starting XI based on club statistics of players this season.
First team choice since he made his debut, Joseph Wollacott obviously will be in charge of the goal post as club statistics speak for themselves. Nine starts for Charlton Athletic in the English League One, recording a clean sheet.
Playing in the Champions League as a vital squad member at Club Brugge, Denis Odoi has the quality and experience Otto Addo needs, hence making the starting lineup in the lethral lines equilibrium to Baba Rahman.
Gideon Mensah’s Auxerre has been poorer this season and Tariq Lamptey barely makes the starting lineup of Brighton.
In the central-defensive role, Alexander Djiku and Daniel Amartey can give the team assurance as seen at club levels. Mohammed Salisu and Southampton are currently having a slow start in the EPL this season, so likely to make progress from the bench.
Return from injury to make the starting lineup of Arsenal before the international break shows how important Thomas Partey’s presence is to the English outfit – enough to pair him with in-form Ajax star Mohammed Kudus in the central defensive midfield.
Although Kudus has been stellar in his new role – false 9, Otto Addo is new to this transition and likely to maintain the 22-year-old in his usual role.
Captain of the side, Andre Ayew will come in the final third together with Kamaldeen Sulemana and Jordan Ayew, while Inaki Williams to lead as the head hunter.
Jordan Ayew’s work rate is highly spoken off in one of the most challenging Leagues in Europe and his goalscoring issues won’t affect the team much given the availability of Williams, Kudus, Sulemana and Dede Ayew – who has proven their goalscoring abilities at respective clubs.
What are your thoughts on this team?
