Waris and Jordan Ayew headline reaction to Ghana's squad announcement

As expected, social media was thrown into a frenzy upon Ghana's unveiling of their final 23-man squad for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Currently camping in the United Arab Emirates, coach James Kwesi Appiah's roster, whittled down from 28, featured a few surprises.

FC Porto striker Abdul Majeed Waris could not make the final squad, leading to speculation that he boycotted a team meeting in anger.

USA-based Ebenezer Ofori, who played at the last Afcon in Gabon, was also cut off but there was a place for Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew, who scored only one league goal last season.

Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Felix Annan is the only Ghana-based player in the team headed for Egypt, following the exclusion of teammate Abdul Safiu Fatawu and Hearts of Oak defender Mohammed Alhassan.

Ghana U-23 captain Yaw Yeboah was the last casualty of Appiah's final call.

Below are some reactions from Twitter upon announcement of the team set to face Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau in Group F of the June 21-July 19 championship:
