2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier: Ghana's probable line-up against Uganda
Stars line-up

Ghana coach Avram Grant is likely to return to his trusted set-up which served him well during the AFCON qualifiers when the Black Stars face Uganda today in their FIFA World Cup Group E opener in Tamale.

Injury has robbed the former Chelsea boss off his talisman Andre Ayew but he will stick to speedster Frank Acheampong as a replacement on that flank per observations in training.

In goal, Razak Brimah is expected to get the nod ahead of Adam Kwarasey while a back four of Harrison Afful, Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah, John Boye will shield him.

Torino Star Afriyie Acquah will line-up in a double-pivot with Panathinaikos man Mubarak Wakaso in front of the back four.

Newcastle speedster Christian Atsu will start on the right flank where he sis tasked with cutting-onto his left foot and playing-in through passes to the strikers.

The goalscoring burden will be shouldered by skipper Asamoah Gyan and Aston Villa striker Jordan Ayew.

Ghana's probable line-up (4-4-2): Razak Brimah- Harrison Afful, Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah, John Boye- Afriyie Acquah, Christian Atsu, Mubarak Wakaso, Frank Acheampong- Asamoah Gyan and Jordan Ayew.
