The Africa Cup of Nations Egypt 2019 will be the first outing for some players.
For others, it is a familiar terrain after multiple appearances and honours. Despite the advancing age of the veterans, they continue to live by the adage ‘old soldier never dies’.
The leaders of the troop are Naby Yatara, Faneva Imà Andriatsima, Jérémy Morel and Aggrey Morris. They are all 35.
Asamoah Gyan is Ghana’s all-time top scorer with 51 goals since he made his debut in 2003 while Owusu, selected at the expense of FC Porto man Majeed Waris will be looking to make his mark in expected cameo appearances.
This will be his seventh AFCON in 11 years (2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017).
