CAF XI: Three Black Stars players make the list

Following the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations 3 members of the Ghana team have been named in the team of the tournament selected by CAF’s Technical Study Group …

Contrary to widely circulated reports on Monday of a team of the tournament which strangely did not include best player of the competition, Christian Atsu, the Confederation of African Football this morning released their official team  of the tournament which includes the Black Stars playmaker.

Also named in the team with a 3-5-2 formation are Ghana duo, defender Harrison Afful and forward Andre Ayew.

Strangely though, CAF named two goalkeepers in the team with 10 outfield players, Ivorian goalkeeper, Sylvain Gbohouo who was even dropped for the final and eccentric DR Congo shot stopper, Robert Kidiaba.

Christian Atsu

All other individual awards remain same but Elephants goalie, Gbohouo is now named as best goalkeeper of the tournament.
