Black Stars head coach, Chris Hughton, is expected to make changes in the squad that played against Angola in March 2023.

For various reasons, four players who made the squad last time out would lose their spots and make the list for the game against Madagascar.

Three of those will be dropped due to injury, while the other may be dropped owing to a poor performance against Angola.

Ghana will face Madagascar in the fifth round of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game on June 18, 2023, at the Mahamasina Municipal Stadium.

Here are four players who played against Angola but could not make the list for the Madagascar trip

Mohammed Salisu

Mohammed Salaisu made Chris Hughton's squad for the games against Angola but could not play due to injury.

Darmstadt defender, Patric Pfeiffer is said to replace the Southhampton man in Chris Hughton's squad.

Edmund Addo

According to reports, the FK Spartak Subotica midfielder did not impress the technical team during the games against Angola, hence, he might be hit with the change.

Jeffrey Schlupp could earn the slot as Chris Hughton is said to have contacted the player to settle supposed resentment against the Black Stars after missing out on the World Cup squad.
