On Tuesday, Goncalves announced the squad of twenty-six (26) players invited to play against the Black Stars in a press conference held at the Angola Football Federation headquarters in Luanda.
The squad includes three goalkeepers, seven defenders, seven midfielders and nine attackers for the crucial match against the senior national team of Ghana. Notable names such as Spezia Calcio’s M’bala Nzola, Rio Ave’s Jacinto Gelson Dala and KAA Gent defender Nuriu Fortuna have made the squad list for the two-legged match.
The Black Stars will host Palancras Negras of Angola at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Thursday, March 23 before travelling to Luanda on March 27, 2023 for the reverse fixture.
The Ghanaian team has 4 points from two games, placing them at the top of the Group E table, following a 3-0 win over Madagascar and a 1-1 draw with Central African Republic in June last year.
Newly-appointed coach Chris Hughton released a 25-man squad list last week which included notable names such as Kudus Mohammed, Joseph Paintsil, Andre Ayew, Thomas Partey, and Inaki Williams for the upcoming fixture.
