Gyan recalled to Ghana squad

News

Gyan is part of a 23-man squad released by Appiah for the October fixtures, despite a season spent largely on the bench at Turkish side Kayserispor.

He has played just 35 minutes of club football this season but is one of four forwards named in the side, while the omission of the Ayew brothers continues to raise questions.

Andre Ayew has started life well at Turkish side Fernabahce, with two goals from seven games, while Jordan Ayew has looked lively for Crystal Palace over the last few weeks, 

Neither Andre or Jordan have been called up for over a year after they both opted out of a 2018 World Cup qualifier against Congo in 2017.

The Black Stars currently top Group F of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on goal difference.

And would be seeking to bounce back from defeat in Kenya when they face Sierra Leone on October 11 in Kumasi and on 15 October in Freetown.

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