Milovan Rajevac has reveal the 28 players heading to AFCON 2021 as part of his Ghana  squad, and a number of names have been dropped, including Abdul Samed Salis, who dropped out with injury, Roma forward Afena Gyan declined the invite to join the team and has opted to continue his development with the Italian outfit.

Ajax's Kudus Mohammed who is recuperating from an injury was surprisingly named in the squad. It is unclear whether the Dutch giants would release the midfielder for AFCON duties.

But from those who made the squad, four key players could have a huge say in how Ghana's tournament shapes up. Rajevac's side have been pitched against Morocco, Gabon and lowly Comoros.
 
Here are the players to look out for in Ghana's squad for AFCON 2022.
 
Thomas Partey
 
The Arsenal midfielder is the beating heart of the Ghana national team, and as such his biting tackles, battling spirit, and aggressive leadership style will be crucial should the Black Stars excel in Cameroon.
 
The spritely midfielder is a joy to watch when he's in full flow, gliding past opponents as if they weren't there on a regular basis. He also has an eye for a pass and will likely be Ghana's leading creative light in Cameroon.
 
Partey is the perfect blend of flair and a workhorse - exactly the kind of player Rajevac needs in his team.
 
Daniel Amartey
 
Daniel Amartey has grown tremendously over the last season, and representing Ghana at the AFCON seems like a no-brainer for the Leicester City man.
 
Amartey has morphed into a world-class player, who rarely gets caught out of position and does not make the silly blunders that held back his progress in the past.
 
The Leicester City versatile player has been outstanding for the Foxes this season and will be hoping to replicate same performances as he resumes on the international stage.
 
Andre Ayew
 
Andre Ayew has been living it up since his AFCON in 2008. So much so that he has been handed the captain's armband for his country's AFCON campaign in Cameroon.
 
Ayew remains in startlingly good shape and still loves to bomb down the right/left-hand side. If you aren't excited about seeing him back in Ghana's white/ yellow shirt, you don't love football.
 
Kamaldeen Sulemana
 
It is hard to overstate just how incredible Sulemana is at football. If you have not boarded the hype train yet, do it now. The wide forward is a dynamite dribbler whose intelligence off the ball is also impressive. 
 
Blessed with effortless ability on the ball and the kind of technical brilliance that can make him decisive in front of goal or when creating, Sulemana is surely among the favourites to be crowned the Young Player of the Tournament.
