Qatar-based Ayew landed on Saturday night and looks poised to lead the Black Stars to victory in the two games.

The two players are expected to be joined by others invited by coach Charles Akonnor to start preparations for the qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa.

Ghana will start training on Tuesday with the first game scheduled against September scheduled for Friday, September 3 in Cape Coast.
