Ghana vs Uganda Africa Cup of Nations: Preview, Lineups, How To Watch, Prediction

It’s Jordan Ayew’s turn today as Ghana take on Uganda.

Led by the brothers Ayew and coached by Avram Grant, Ghana have all the talent in the world and should be able to find a result against Uganda. However, we saw a Togo side hold Jonathan Kodjia’s Ivory Coast to a goalless draw yesterday. Anything is possible and Ghana would do well to learn from the Elephants and their slight derailment yesterday.

While much will be expected of Asamoah Gyan and Andre Ayew - Villa fans will know the qualities of Jordan Ayew well and although he may not start - there’s likely no better impact player in this tournament.

Uganda on the other hand share an equal record with Ghana - they’ve both won three games against each other and split the other four into draws. Their records indicate that this is an even matchup - especially when you consider the dry spells Ghana have endured in front of goal recently. The Cranes of Uganda are not to be underestimated, their side boasts a player of the year and most of their talent is unknown to the westerner - and they could wear Ghana down and take them all the way.
