Dede to captain Black Stars against Guinea and Mauritius

Andre Ayew will be handed the armband to lead Ghana in the upcoming double assignments with Asamoah Gyan ruled out.

The Swansea City star will be making a return to the team after missing March’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations double-header against Mozambique due to injury.

Ayew was sidelined after he sustained an ankle injury while playing for his side against his brother’s side Aston Villa.


The 26-year-old will lead the Black Stars against Guinea on Saturday in an international friendly to be played in France.

He will also captain the side when they face Mauritius away in a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations penultimate round qualifier.

Ayew had a successful debut in the English Premier League where he scored 12 goals to emerge the club’s top scorer.
