Ghana coach to adopt attack formation for Burkina clash


Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has stated his intention to adopt an attacking formation against Burkina Faso as he is faced with a must-win situation to survive in the Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday.

The Serbian’s defensive looking 4-5-1 formation against Ivory Coast failed to yield dividends as his side crushed to a 3-1 defeat last Friday.

Rajevac is ready to switch to a more attacking approach 4-4-2 formation that will unlock the defensive pattern by the Burkinabes hatched by their Portuguese coach Paulo Duarte.

Russia-based midfielder Haminu Draman is expected to employ his speed and tact as he is expected to be handed a role on the right-flank.

Dede Ayew who struggled in the match against Ivory Coast will be shifted to his favourite left-flank role to provided the crosses into the box.

Emmanuel Agyeman-Badu and Kwadwo Asamoah has been handed responsibilities in the midfield.

Chelsea of Bechem Lee Arday is likely to replace Eric Addo, who missed Monday’s training due to Malaria, in central defence.

Hans Adu-Sarpei will be picked as left-back and Samuel Inkoom is likely to retain his right-back position.

Probable Ghana line-up:

Richard Kingson-Lee Arday, Isaac Vorsah, Samuel Inkoom, Hans Adu-Sarpei, Emmanuel Agyeman-Badu, Kwadwo Asamoah, Dede Ayew, Haminu Dramani, Mathew Amoah, Asamoah Gyan.
