Asamoah Gyan gets AFCON qualifier call-up

Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan has received a call-up in Ghana’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone.

Gyan has not played for the national team for some time now partly due to injuries.

Coach Kwesi Appiah also called back long-time absentees like Mubarak Wakaso and Jonathan Mensah into the squad.

The double-header against Sierra Leone would be played in Kumasi and Freetown as the Black Stars seek to redeem their image after a distasteful 0 – 1 defeat to Kenya last month.

The first leg of the game would be played in Kumasi on 11 October.

Goalkeepers: Richard Ofori (Maritzburg United, South Africa), Lawrence Ati Zigi (Sochaux, France), Felix Annan (Asante Kotoko)

Defenders: Harrison Afful (Columbus Crew, USA), Andy Yiadom (Reading FC, England), Lumor Agbenyenu (Sporting Lisbon, Portugal), Jonathan Mensah (Columbus Crew, USA), John Boye (FC Metz, France), Daniel Amartey (Leicester City, England), Nicholas Opoku (Udinese, Italy)

Midfielders: Mubarak Wakaso (Deportivo Alaves, Spain), Isaac Sackey (Alanyaspor, Turkey), Afriyie Acquah (Empoli, Italy), Kwadwo Asamoah (Inter Milan, Italy), Thomas Partey (Atletico Madrid, Spain), Bernard Mensah (Kayserispor, Turkey), Christian Atsu (Newcastle United, England), Thomas Agyepong (Hibernian, Scotland), Nana Ampomah (Waasland-Beveren, Belgium)
