Asante Kotoko striker Nathaniel Asamoah has been handed a surprise call-up to the Ghana squad for next month’s double header against Swaziland and Brazil.
Coach Goran Stevanovic also kept faith with Adam Kwarasey and Albert Adomah, as revealed by KickOffGhana.com this week.
Stevanovic today announced a 23-man squad for the game with Swaziland at the Accra Sports Stadium on September 2 in the penultimate Group I reverse fixture, before an international friendly at Craven Cottage in London on September 5 with the South American nation.
Both Kwarasey and Adomah were set to have made their debut against Nigeria in Watford before rioting in England forced organisers to cancel the game on August 9.
The two uncapped players will now get the opportunity to make their home debut if selected for the game in Accra.
