Team News 
West Ham United star Mohammed Kudus has joined the Ghana camp after recovering from an injury.
Veteran players Ryan Mendes and goalkeeper Vozinha will return for a fourth AFCON after being named in the final Cape Verde squad. 
“Mozambique and Cape Verde are two teams that I don’t know so much about,” Ghana head coach Chris Hughton said about their Group B rivals.
“However, we will do all of our homework, over these coming months, [and] watch their games from now, and before the tournament starts. 
"But I think whenever a group comes out, you always think that it could have been better for us, and could have been worse for us."
Ghana and Angola have met five times across all competitions. The Black Stars have recorded four wins compared to the Blue Sharks' one victory.
The last meeting between the two teams ended in a 2-0 win in favour of Ghana in a 2013 AFCON match in February 2013.
