Ghana begins the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations campaign against West African neighbours Benin on Tuesday evening in Ismailia. Coach Kwesi Appiah has named his lineup to face Benin nine hours before kick-off as the Black Stars seek to start this year’s tournament on a good note. Ghana will open their account in Egypt tonight, but how have they fared in their AFCON openers since 2000?3 wins âœ…2 lossesâŒ3 drawsðŸ¤#JoyAFCON #AFCON2019 #TotalAFCON2019 #BlackStars #FootballTogether #GoGhana #GHABEN pic.twitter.com/cHsY4c2zoj— JoySports #JoyAFCON (@JoySportsGH) June 25, 2019 Kwasi Appiah relied heavily on the 4-4-2 formation during the qualifiers but he is set to switch to a 4-2-3-1 formation. A system he tried in Black Stars last pre-tournament friendly against South Africa which ended 0-0. Despite the team failing to score, the performance exhibited according to Joy Sports’ tournament correspondent, Benedict Owusu, who watched the game, was very impressive. Making their debuts in the Africa Cup of Nations will be Lumor Agbeyenu, Kasim Nuhu and Thomas Agyepong. The shock omission is vice-captain of the side Kwadwo Asamoah who was expected to play in a midfield role. The Inter Milan star was reportedly Ghana’s best player in two pre-tournament friendlies. As expected, Maritzburg goalkeeper Richard Ofori is the first choice to start in goal. With Harrison Afful failing to make the squad due to injury, Reading defender Andy Yiadom starts right back with Lumor Agbeyenu starting ahead of Baba Rahman.Metz defender John Boye will partner German-based Kassim Nuhu with Mubarak Wakaso and Partey shielding the back four.Atsu will play from his favourite right flank and Thomas Agyepong will be on duty on the opposite flank. Skipper Andre Ayew will play behind his brother Jordan Ayew.Ghana’s starting XI to face Benin: Richard Ofori- Andy Yiadom, Lumor Agbeyenu, John Boye, Kasim Nuhu- Mubarak Wakaso, Thomas Partey, Thomas Agyepong, Christian Atsu, Andre Ayew-Jordan Ayew.Follow all the tournament games with #JoyAFCON.

Tributes were paid to the late former Fine Gael TD, Minister of State and County Councillor Paddy Harte at this afternoon’s meeting of the Letterkenny Municipal District.The 86-year-old from Raphoe died yesterday and tributes have been pouring in.This afternoon’s meeting at the Letterkenny Public Services Centre was adjourned for 15 minutes after a minute’s silence as a mark of respect. “Paddy was well known to me personally from I was a young boy and I knew him right up to his death,” said the Mayor of the Letterkenny Municipal District, Fine Gael Councillor Jimmy Kavanagh.He was an absolute gentleman, he was always good humoured and he could listen to and tell a good story.“He was also a very formidable politician and was best known for his work in the Northern Ireland Forum and, of course, the Idea of Ireland Peace Park in Flanders, which he helped to set up.“He was a very courageous politician and I think it is fitting that we are now in 2018, the centenary of the ending of World War 1.” Fellow Councillors joined in the words of sympathy.“He would not have been selected for so long only for the hard work he did for the people,” Fianna Fáil Councillor Ciaran Brogan said, with his party colleague Councillor Liam Blaney adding: “I worked with him for a long number of years and I would echo those words of sympathy.”Sinn Féin Councillor Gerry McMonagle, the Mayor of Donegal said: “You don’t be a public representative for so long without working hard and it is a testimony for the work he did as a councillor and as a TD.“He did a lot of work on peace and reconciliation. Many times, we were at loggerheads and face-to-face over our differing politics, but we learned to live and move on. We have to acknowledge the work he did and he has left a fine legacy.”Councillor John O’Donnell said Paddy Harte had always been ‘highly regarded and highly thought of’ and Councillor Ian McGarvey recounted a recent visit to see Mr Harte, who he said was ‘a very forward looking person’, in hospital. Councillor Michael McBride recalled meeting Mr Harte at the World Cup in America in 1994.“I met him by a swimming pool in Florida and he could tell me all about my family members; we had a long conversation and I enjoyed it. That was the type of man he was.”Donegal County Council Director of Services Liam Ward paid tribute on behalf of Council staff and members.He said: “He had a long and distinguished career at a time when there were some formidable politicians in the chamber.” Letterkenny MD Councillors pay respect and tributes to the late Paddy Harte was last modified: January 9th, 2018 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Ciaran BroganFine GaelJimmy KavanaghJohn O’DonnellletterkennyLetterkenny Municipal DistrictLiam Blaneymichael mcbridepaddy harteRaphoe
