Mozambique vs Ghana prediction

Mozambique vs Ghana Team News

Mozambique

Mozambique should stick with their favoured 3-4-2-1 formation for their final group match against Ghana. Keeper Ernan and defender Edmilson Dove both made errors leading to goals in Mozambique's 3-0 loss to Cape Verde last time out, though both players should keep their places.

Predicted Lineup for Mozambique: Ernan – Mexer, Dove, Reinildo – Macandza, Amade, Guima, Langa – Catamo, Witi, Ratifo

Ghana

Ghana have few personnel issues to contend with, so expect to see a similar XI to the one that drew 2-2 with Egypt in their last assignment. Mohamed Kudus was given a free role in the number ten position against the Egyptians and he could be handed a similar remit on Monday.

Predicted Lineup for Ghana: Ofori – Odoi, Djiku, Salisu, Mensah – Ashimeru, Samed, Williams, Kudus, Ayew – Semenyo

Confirmed lineups will appear here around 60 minutes before kickoff.

Player to Watch – Iñaki Williams

Much is expected of Iñaki Williams at AFCON given his top-level club experience with Athletic Bilbao in La Liga, though the winger has struggled to make an impact so far. The rapid runner has the technical gifts to be a real force in the tournament and Ghanaian fans will be eager for him to catch fire soon.
