Arsenal attacker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang of Gbon is expected to play against Ghana in the Africa Cup of Nations on Friday night after recovering from Covid-19 and the 32-year old represents a big threat against the Black Stars defenders.
Even in his worst season at Arsenal (7 goals plus 2 assists in 2021/22 season) , Aubameyang is better compared to the Ghana strikers – Jordan Ayew, Benjamin Tetteh, Boakye Yiadom and co.
The former Dortmund striker has 29 goals in 71 caps for his national team.
Aubameyang , despite his age and lack of big form this season, is a quality striker that can break any defence at the Africa Cup of Nations and the Black Stars defenders must be warned.
Concerns are definitely raised when one considers the fact that Ghana has conceded 3 goals in their last two games including friendly games.
The Gabon match is a must win for the Black Stars and one of the problems Milovan Rajecas has to deal with on Friday will be how to stop a dangerous striker like Aubameyang as Nigeria coach Augustine Eguavon successfully did against Mohamed Salah of Egypt.
