CONFIRMED: Kwadwo Asamoah to captain Ghana ahead of Kenya clash
Kwadwo Asamoah is set to be handed the Black Stars captaincy as Ghana lock horns with Kenya in the 2019 Afcon qualifiers on Saturday in Nairobi.
The Inter Milan midfielder is expected to be handed the armband as he marks his return to the Black Stars after a four-year absence.
Asamoah Gyan and Andre Ayew were both dropped from his squad ahead of the clash which means Kwesi Appiah is likely to build his team around the former Juventus versatile man.
Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey has been handed the role on an interim basis but the 25-year-old has downplayed his chances of replacing the iconic Asamoah Gyan.
Partey captained the country in the Japan and Iceland international friendlies.
However, coach Kwesi Appiah sees the 29-year-old as a leader who can inherit the armband from record goal-scorer Asamoah Gyan.
