The best and worst of Ghanaians players abroad

Too Good: Nana Ampomah: The winger has now taken his season goal tally to five in eight league games involving seven starts after finding the back of the net for Waasland-Beveren in their 3-0 away triumph over Royal Excel Mouscron on Saturday.

Too Bad: Isaac Sackey: There was a third career red card for the defensive midfielder as his Alanyaspor side beat Akhisarspor 2-1 in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday. The 24-year-old was forced to take an early shower after picking up a yellow card for a second bookable offence in the 69th minute.

Too Bad: Baba Rahman: The left-back was not in Schalke's matchday squad for Saturday's 1-0 win over Mainz 05. That wasn't the first time this season. At the start, it was speculated that the 24-year-old was excused from the team due to the birth of his child. But having to miss four successive games, considering his injury history, that 20-year-old summer signing Hamza Mendyl is the only remaining recognized left-back option for the Royal Blues, more so amid the club's fight to shed off their turbulent start to the season raise many alarms. Is there another Baba injury?

Too Bad: Asamoah Gyan: The 32-year-old watched Kayserispor's 2-0 loss to Besiktas on Saturday from the bench. It was his sixth bench appearance during a league game this campaign. With only 34 minutes of topflight action to his name this season, Ghanaians must be genuinely concerned as he's been given a Black Stars recall ahead of the double-header against Sierra Leone in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
