Both Mubarak Wakaso and Abdul Majeed Waris were both present as they are making their return to the side since the second stint of Coach Kwesi Appiah begun.

The Deportivo Alaves and Lorient enforcers are respectively expected to show a positive attitude towards the match to get a favourable result even though qualification is no longer possible.

Ghana will be hoping to get a good result against their bitter rivals Egypt to at least stake a claim and also better their standings in the FIFA World rankings.

Till date, Ghana has played in three finals in 1992, 2010 and 2015 and have been unsuccessful on all these occasions.
