Wakaso, Acquah to return for Ghana against Iceland

Midfield duo Mubarak Wakaso and Afriyie Acquah have rejoined the Black Stars squad ahead of the friendly against Iceland this week.

The two players decided not to travel as the Black Stars left Accra last Saturday for the double-header of friendlies against Japan and Iceland due to grievances over a slash in appearance fee.

They withdrew after the appearance fee was reduced from $5,000 to $2,000. In their absence, the Black Stars produced a great performance to beat Japan 2-0 in Yokohama.

But after being heavily criticised by Ghanaians, Wakaso and Acquah have had a change of mind.

According to, the Deportivo Alaves and Torino midfielders have arrived in the team's camp in Europe and could feature against Iceland on June 7.
