Ghana head coach Milovan Rajevac is set to have it easy settling on a final 28-man squad for the 2021 TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
This is because two out of the 30-man provisional squad are already not able to join the camp of the Black Stars in Doha, Qatar.
AS Roma teenage sensation Felix Afena-Gyan is not ready for the national team and his club wants him to stay and focus on his development.
For Mohammed Kudus, the Black Stars poster boy is injured and unlikely to recover in time to be released by Ajax for the 2021 AFCON.
As a result, the job of axing two players from camp prior to the AFCON has been made easy for Ghana head coach Milovan Rajevac.

Joseph Wolacott (Swindon Town), Abdul Manaf Nurudeen (Eupen), Richard Attah (Hearts of Oak), Lawrence Ati Zigi (St. Gallen)
