Captain Andre Ayew, Vice captain Thomas Partey and striker Jordan Ayew have joined the Black Stars ahead of the game against São Tomé and Principe. The three England based players missed the game against South Africa due to issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic as the rainbow country has been declared a COVID-19 risk zone by the World Health Organization (WHO)

The trio trained with the rest of the squad on Friday, at Accra sports stadium as the team began preparation for the final Group C Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against São Tomé and Principe.

Ghana aim for a win on Sunday to keep hold of the top spot and also to finish the qualifiers on a sound footing.
