Richard Ofori will start in goal for Ghana in the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Madagascar on Friday.

The Orlando Pirates shot stopper makes his first start for the Black Stars since September 2021 when he started but hobbled off in a 1-0 defeat to South Africa in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Johannesburg.

Turkey based defender Daniel Amartey partners Nicholas Opoku in central defence as Gideon Mensah and Alidu play as fullbacks.

Jordan Ayew, Antoine Semenyo and Inaki Williams will operate in a front three with Mohammed Kudus planted behind them as Baba Idrissu and Abdul Samed Salis play in the heart of the park.

The FIFA World Cup 2026 qualifier will take place at the Baba Yara Sports stadium at 4pm.
