The Barcelona forward is the star name for the South Americans for a friendly that has failed to catch on in Ghana especially after the Black Stars semi final showing at the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
But Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic for whom this could be his final game in charge of the Black Stars has picked a team he hopes will put in a performance that appeases a public still unhappy with the Nations Cup display.
As many as nine players were axed from the Nations Cup squad and Stevanovic has sought new striking options by calling up Dominic Oduro from Major League Soccer side Chicago Fire and Emmanuel Baffoe of New Edubiase whose 13 goals in 14 games has made him a local favourite.
The Ayew brothers, Jordan and Andre have pulled out from the squad too citing minor injuries in a move bound to magnify rumours of rifts within the squad involving the brothers.
It leaves Stevanovic with only sixteen players to call on for the game but his biggest responsibility may not be how well he gets them to play but how he can restore relationship with the players after revelations he made that players use black magic to destroy each other upset many members of the side.
