The Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association, Henry Asante Twum, has reiterated that the withdrawal of players from the Black Stars squad will not affect the team's performance ahead of the double-header of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan.


The Ghana national team has been hit with players withdrawal after Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Majeed Ashimeru, Harrison Afful of Columbus Crew and Jiangsu Suning's Mubarak Wakaso as well as Mallorca's Baba Idrissu pulled out of the Sudan clash due to the fear of Coronavirus.

Arsenal star Thomas Partey failed to recover on time after he sustained muscle injury during their 3-0 defeat at home to Aston Villa in the the English Premier League over the weekend and Greuther Furth's teenager Jamie Leweling also pulled out, citing personal reasons.
There are fears the withdrawal of such key players could dent the Black Stars chances of coming out victorious over the two games after they were replaced by other eight charges.
But the former Dreams FC Communications kingpin feels otherwise.
"I don't think the exemption of some players will affect the results churned out by the team," Henry Asante Twum told Kumasi-based Nhyira FM.
"Rather I think it will be an opportunity for the new players to prove their capabilities," he ended.
Ghana will lock horns with Sudan on Thursday at exactly 16:00 GMT at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium before travelling to Omdurman five days later for the reverse fixture.
