JUL 7, 2019 CUP OF NATIONS

Former Ghanaian forward, Augustine Ahinful has insisted that Afriyie Acquah must start against Tunisia and in Ghana's subsequent matches.

The Torino midfielder has enjoyed limited games in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Football fans in the country have called on Coach Kwesi Appiah and the technical handlers of the Black Stars to play the 26-year-old alongside Mubarak Wakaso.

And according to the former AshantiGold striker beleives playing Afriyie Acquah in the middle and pushing Thomas Partey forward will increase the team's chances of scoring more goals.

“In midfield, he can move Dede [ayew] to the left and introduce Afriyie Acquah in the middle, so Thomas Partey will play in front of them. We ought to dictate the pace of the game,” he told Graphic Sports.

Ghana's round of 16 clash against Tunisia will kick off 16:00GMT on Monday at the Ismailia Stadium.
