Midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu will wear the armband ahead of Ghana’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mozambique today.
The Udinese combative enforcer will be tasked with the responsibility of leading the team following the unavailability of Asamoah Gyan.
Gyan, who plays for Chinese side Shanghai SIPG has been ruled out of the clash with a thigh problem.
The former Sunderland hitman picked up the injury during the team’s last training session on Wednesday in the Ghanaian capital, Accra.
Badu, who is third in the leadership chain, will wear the armband with Andre Ayew also absent with an ankle injury.
Ghana will hope to secure an early qualification to the continental showpiece in Gabon next year with win over the Os Mambas at the Accra sports stadium.
