The Arsenal midfielder will captain the Black Stars in the absence of regular skipper Andre Ayew, who is not part of the matchday squad
The veteran forward and Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu are the only two players excluded from the matchday squad by Chris Hughton.
Reports suggest the technical team of the Black Stars decided to leave the pair out of the matchday squad as a precaution.
Meanwhile, Lawrence Ati Zigi, however, maintains his position in post, having been Ghana’s starting goalkeeper at the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
He is flanked by a defensive quartet of Denis Odoi, Gideon Mensah, Alexander Djiku and Daniel Amartey as Mohammed Salisu sits out due to injury.
