Albert Adomah to wear famous number 10 jersey at Nations Cup

Published on: 09 January 2013

England-based midfielder Albert Adomah has been handed Ghana's number 10 jersey for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Bristol City player, who will be making his first appearance at the Nations Cup, takes over the iconic shirt number.

At the last tournament in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, Andre Ayew wore the famous shirt as Ghana finished fourth.

Debutant Awal Mohammed gets the number 5 shirt while Rabiu Mohammed is handed the 11 shirt.

Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey who is making his second appearance at the Nations Cup has settled for the number 12 jersey after making his tournament debut last year in the 16 shirt.

Ghana poster boy Christian Atsu will wear the number 7 shirt and Juventus ace Kwadwo Asamoah has stuck to his customized number 20 jersey.

    Thank you Christo! I am short of words that is why I have said nothing so far! I don't know whether these so call fans insulting Coach A.A want him to kiss Dede's ass? Coach A.A will NOT and I repeat will NOT kiss any player's player's ass. The best and most committed players Ghana has at the moment have chosen to represent the country. Those of you who will not support the team because your so called favorite players are not included should go to hell. Some of us will support the team no matter which player is chosen to play for the Black Stars.That is what support is all about. Enough of this bullshit!:( ....after all even if CR7 and Messi were included in the B.S team, you hypocritical supporters will still call for the coach's head!

    in fack am not a fun of A. Appiah but i wouldn'd be senseless to the extent of attacking on tribal line. This coach made the right decision and nobody should insult him. Even if you are father i'll insult, son of a mad man and a bitch conbined if you attack the coach. Think well before and stop being miopic.

    Maka or whatever, do you think at all? I understand you attacked the GFA for hiring foreign coaches claiming local coaches are better. So you are the greatest hypocritical Ghanaian ever. Now you say Kissi Boateng was injured yet he has been called. If he was injured he still made himself available to the coach and Ghanaian doctors. He didn't opt to stay somewhere to receive treatment expecting to be named without training with the others. So maka you see how stupid and foolish you are.

    Tell me is solomon Asante beter than Daniel Nii Adjei? A.Appiah just want to give the Ashante guys some exposure for nothing you know if you don't win the cup Ghanaians can't do anything to you that's why you are doing this rubbish but we promise you if don't cover your ass.

    It is very amazing amazing how Akwasi Appiah cannot take a gamble on Andre Ayew's fascia muscle injury (hamstring) and quickly dropped him...but were we all not witnesses to #2 - Richard Kissi Boateng's (DF) injury? it is so amazing how hypocritical we are....and as for this AFCON, I pity those who have hope in this team! I cant wait for the world cup to start to see how useless Akwasi Appiah is and shall be exposed.....and watch out for his tactics this AFCON--- TOTALLY CLUELESS!

    It is people who have nothing intelligent to say, who go on an insult spree at the least opportunity. Who has our football got to do with tribalism? We have done a lot of this in our politics thus bringing a lot of division in the country. Now soccer which used to bring the whole nation together is the next target. Wise up and stop this useless and childish behaviour.
