A team of 32 players have reported to camp despite travel restrictions and the absence of some key players.

Meanwhile, Hearts of Oak captain Fatawu Mohammed and Great Olympics defender Samuel Ashie-Quaye have been handed a late invite to the Black Stars team for the World Cup qualifiers.

The pair were given call ups by Ghana coach C.K Akonnor as some players fail to report.

Ghana are scheduled to host Group G opponents Ethiopia on Friday, September 3 in Cape Coast, before playing South Africa on Monday, September 6, 2021, in Johannesburg respectively.
