AFCON 2021: Why Joseph Paintsil is trending ahead of Ghana vs against Gabon game

The Ghana Black Stars are preparing to give Gabon a run for their money today in the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations being held in Cameroon.

Ghana is hopeful of securing three points at the end of the game after failing to win their match against Morocco on Monday.

But prior to the game, one of the notable players whose works was recognised during Monday’s opener has been trending on Twitter.

John Paintsil is the man of the hour and here is why.

According to reports from JoySports, coach Milovan Rajevac may bench the winger because Paintsil was not among the players who took part in Thursday evening’s training.

This has left Ghanaians perturbed as they wonder how the team will fare at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium with one of its brightest lads being benched instead of playing.

Some of the users are against the idea of Jordan Ayew being a starter in the game against Gabon.
