Ghana coach Avram Grant has named a strong side for Ghana’s opener against Uganda in their Group D African Cup of Nations.

8 players who started the final against Ivory Coast start in Port-Gentil as Ghana aim to go one better than they did in 2015.

Midfielder Thomas Partey, who will be making his AFCON debut replaces Afriyie Acquah in the center of midfield while Jordan Ayew will be partnered by captain Asamoah Gyan.

John Boye and Daniel Amartey will continue their partnership in the heart of defence flanked by Harrison Afful and Baba Rahman.

Dede Ayew and Christian Atsu will provide the width from the left and right respectively.

Razak Braimah maintains his spot in goal.
