Afcon 2017: Avram Grant Names His Finest 23

Black Stars lost the 2015  final to Ivory Coast.

FC Lorient striker, abortion Abdul Majeed Warris is among the three players that have been axed from Ghana’s contingent heading for the African Cup finals in Gabon.

Coach Avram Grant rushed to beat the deadline for submitting the final 23-man list by Wednesday mid night.

Joseph Lwareh Attamah and Austria Lustenau’s Raphael Dwamena are the other two who failed to make the cut despite receiving a summon in the initial provisional squad.
