Sudan will be looking to avenge their Africa Cup of Nations qualification loss against Ghana last time out when they meet on Tuesday afternoon (1pm kick-off).
Charles Akonnor’s men were just too good at home when they ran out comfortable winners and were grateful to skipper André Ayew who grabbed a brace.
Ghana currently top Group C on nine points, three ahead of South Africa, but Sudan know a win could see them in the mix for qualification.
The Falcons of Jediane have so far picked up one win from three matches played (4-0 v São Tomé and Príncipe) and know a win could see them move to within three of the four-time champions.

- Sudan (vs Ghana): Abu-Eshrein; Merghani, Suliman, Elnour, Abdalla; Nasr Omar, Abuaagla, Al-Rasheed; Ramadan Agab, Abdelrahman, Al-Tash.

Hubert Velud is expected to make few changes, if any, from the side that fell to a 2-0 loss to Ghana earlier in week. Atahir Eltahir, who came on just after the hour mark, is someone pushing for a start.
Ghana boss Charles Akonnor, who has a fully available squad to choose from, could retain the eleven players that started in Cape Coast though centre-forward Caleb Ekuban is eyeing a starting place.
Players to watch:
- Sudan: Velud’s men currently sit a lowly 128th in the current Fifa world rankings and will certainly be under the cosh against Ghana’s irresistible attack, so expect their defence and 52-time capped centre-back Amir Kamal to be working overtime. The 28-year-old, who currently plies his trade for Al-Merrikh, played the full 90 minutes last time out but wasn’t able to keep André Ayew and company quiet but this is a new opportunity to make amends.
- Ghana: Speaking of André Ayew, he goes into this game looking to further establish himself as the most prolific scorer in Akonnor’s current squad. He’s currently on 19 goals for Ghana, two more than younger brother Jordan has produced. However, Ghana’s captain has made 27 appearances more than Crystal Palace’s striker. The older Ayew sibling netted twice against Sudan last time out which proved to be his first AFCON qualification goals since June 2016 when he scored against Mauritius.
