The former Hearts of Midlothian midfielder took to Instagram to commemorate the moment:

"Amazing chat with the Ayews," he wrote.

The Ghana Under-17 assistant manager believes the Black Stars will qualify for AFCON and end the country's drought in neighbouring country, Ivory Coast.

Meanwhile, the Ayew brothers are expected to play a pivotal role in the current team due to their experience in international football.

Andre - who recently ended his stay with Nottingham Forest - has over 100 caps with the national team and has been Black Stars captain since 2019, as reported by ESPN.

Meanwhile, Jordan had a brilliant end to the 2022/23 English Premier League, spearheading Roy Hodgson's brilliant run with Crystal Palace.

The Black Stars need just one point against Madagascar on Sunday to qualify for AFCON 2023.

Paintsil declares Black Stars ready

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Black Stars winger, Joseph Paintsil stating Ghana will qualify for the tournament in Ivory Coast next year.

The west African nation will face Madagascar on June 18 in the penultimate AFCON qualifier with a place at the tournament at stake.

The Black Stars need only one point to confirm their place in the tournament, but will have Madagascar to deal with in Antananarivo.

Ghana suffer another injury blow

In related news, Ghana suffered another injury blow after defender, Gideon Mensah pulled out of the squad.

Forward, Inaki Williams and defender, Alexander Djiku have also withdrawn from the squad due to injuries.

Mensah's injury means the Black Stars have only one left-back when they face Madagascar later this month.
