Goalkeeper Richard Kingson will captain Ghana in the absence of John Mensah for Wednesday’s friendly against South Africa at the Soccer City Stadium.

The 32 year-old who kept the post for the Black Stars at the 2010 World Cup arrived in the team’s camp on Tuesday as Milovan Rajevac prepares his side for the first game since they went out in the quarter-final stages at the World Cup in South Africa.

Rajevac has replaced Mensah with Under-20 youngster Bright Addae.

The Sunderland defender is the second player to pull out after Dominic Adiyiah.

Kevin-Prince Boateng has also withdrawn from the squad leaving Rajevac with a 17-man squad.
