What Are The Jersey Numbers For Every Black Galaxies Player Competing In CHAN 2023 In Algeria?

The 7th edition of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) commenced in Algeria on Friday, January 13, 2023.

After an exciting opening ceremony in Algiers, Algeria faced the competition's first champions, Libya, at the Baraki Stadium. 

The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has confirmed Ghana's Black Galaxies' 2023 Championship of African Nations (CHAN) jersey numbers.

The adorably talented staff of editors at has discovered the jersey numbers of Annor Walker's team, which will play for the trophy for the first time since 2014.

Annor Walker and his charges left the shores of Ghana for Egypt on the eve of the festive season, preparing for the tournament with 25 official players from the local league.

Although notable players who should have automatically made the final squad failed, their replacements were entirely satisfactory, especially Mohammed Alhassan, who played an integral role in the qualifiers and should have been part of Annor Walker's final list for Algeria.

Some notable players that fought hard for the Black Galaxies to earn a qualification slot for the CHAN competition are Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, Danlad Ibrahim, Dennis Nkrumah Korsah, David Abagna, and, to an extent, Jonah Attuquaye, whose numbers have been approved by CAF.

The Black Galaxies have switched camp bases from Algeria, after a series of pre-CHAN friendly games in Egypt and Algeria, to Constantine, where they are scheduled to play all their group games at the Mohammed Hamlaoui Stadium.

The Black Galaxies will face Madagascar in their opening match in Group C at 19:00 GMT on January 15. They will play two more group games against defending champions Morocco over the next four days, but reports indicate that they have officially withdrawn from the competition.

Gladson Awako, the team's captain, will wear jersey number 11, while close friends Danlad Ibrahim and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh will wear numbers 16 and 18, respectively.

The table below shows the players’ names, jersey numbers, and local clubs of the Black Galaxies at the CHAN Tournament in Algeria.

Solomon Adomako of Great Olympics will wear jersey number 4, Konadu Yiadom of Hearts of Oak will wear jersey number 5, and Kwame Otuo of Vision FC will wear jersey number 6. Stephen Odai Kwaku of Great Olympics will wear jersey number 1, Augustine Randolph of Karela United will wear jersey number 2, and Benjamin Aidoo of Medeama SC will wear jersey number 3. Sylvester Simba of Dreams FC is anticipated to don jersey number 7.
