2018 World Cup: How BBC reported Ayew brothers' exclusion from squad to face Uganda

Jordan and Andre Ayew have both been left out of the Ghana squad for their 2018 World Cup qualifier in Uganda.The brothers played for their English Premier League clubs at the weekend but pulled out of the Ghana squad for their last World Cup tie against Congo.

 

 

Andre complained of a knee injury while Jordan cited a stomach illness.

Germany-based defender Daniel Opare returns to the side for the first time since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil after playing well for his German club Augsburg.

 

Captain Asamoah Gyan is joined by other experienced players like Atletico Madrid's Thomas Partey, who scored a hat-trick in the 5-1 win over Congo earlier this month.

 

The squad will be reduced to 23 players before the trip to Uganda.
