Emmanuel Agyemang Badu will captain Black Stars for Ghana’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday.
Captain of the side Asamoah Gyan will not feature for the Stars and Andre Ayew who is the deputy has been ruled out due to an injury.
And this has paved way for the Udinese midfielder who is third in command to wear the captain’s armband in their absence.
Badu captained the team during Ghana’s 2017 qualifier against Mozambique in Maputo.
He also captained the Black Stars in their last 2015 Afcon qualifier against Guinea at the Tamale Stadium.
However, both Gyan and Andrew have arrived in the country to support their colleagues.
