Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has named untested Abdul Fatawu Safiu in his starting line-up to face Namibia in Sunday's pre-2019 Africa Cup of Nations friendly.

Afriyie Acquah is in the holding role and will have support from Yaw Yeboah.

The attack duo is Jordan Ayew and Abdul Majeed Waris.

Lawrence Ati-Zigi is between the sticks as goalkeeper with Jonathan Mensah and Joseph Aidoo as centre back.

Appiah will name his final 23-man squad after this friendly match.
