Strikers Daniel Afriyie Barnieh and Antoine Semenyo have been left out of Ghana’s squad for the Central African Republic match in Angola.

Otto Addo, the Black Stars’ coach, named 25 players for the trip, excluding Barnieh and Semenyo. Goalkeeper Richard Ofori, Bechem United attacker Augustine Okrah and injured defender Joseph Aidoo have also been dropped.

The Ghana Football Association who published the list on their website Friday said “Daniel Afriyie Barnieh and Augustine Okrah did not make the cut for the match.”

However, no reason was given for Ofori and Semenyo’s exclusion.

The team departed Accra on Friday evening.

Black Stars were ruthless in their first game of the qualifiers, defeating Madagascar 3-0 at the Cape Coast stadium on Wednesday.

Addo and his charges will be looking for a second win to extend their lead at the top of the group.

The match is scheduled for the 11 de Novembro stadium in Lunada, Angola on Sunday, June 5, 2022.

Central African Republic opted for Angola because they do not have a CAF approved stadium to host international matches.

Below is the squad list:

Goalkeepers: Joseph Wollacott, Lawrence Ati-Zigi, Manaf Nurudeen

Defenders: Alidi Seidu, Dennis Odoi, Gideon Mensah, Abdul Baba Rahman, Abdul Mumin, Daniel Amartey, Jonathan Mensah

Midfielders: Idrissu Baba, Edmund Addo, Elisha Owusu, Mohammed Kudus, Daniel Kofi Kyereh, Mubarak Wakaso

Wingers/Attackers: Andre Ayew, Joseph Painstil, Jordan Ayew, Kamaldeen Sulemana, Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, Osman Bukari, Felix Afena Gyan, Kwesi Wreidt, Benjamin Tetteh
