John Mensah, Inkoom to make Ghana return for World Cup qualifiers

Coach Kwesi Appiah will be naming a 24-man squad today for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Sudan and Lesotho and the list is likely to have the ‘Rock of Gibraltar’
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is scheduled to release his squad for the double-header against Sudan and Lesotho on Friday afternoon.

Strong signals reaching Goal Ghana from the Ghana FA indicate general captain John Mensah is billed to make a comeback after joining French Ligue 1 side Stade Rennes. Another old face likely to make up the squad is defender Samuel Inkoom.

Goalkeeper Fatau Dauda will retain his first-choice spot whiles usual face Daniel Adjei of Liberty Professionals remain as Dwarfs keeper Foli Adade is introduced as a results of Adam Kwarasey’s injury.

Esperance’s Harrison Afful, Richard Kissi-Boateng of TP Mazembe, John Boye, Jonathan Mensah and Jerry Akaminko, Rashid Sumaila, and Awal Mohammed will make up the list in defence.

In midfield are AC Milan’s Sulley Muntari, Christian Atsu, Anthony Annan, Solomon Asante, Emmanuel Agyeman-Badu, Kwadwo Asamoah, Rabiu Mohammed, and Espanyol’s Mubarak Wakaso.

It is, however, not clear if Spartak Moscow’s Abdul Majeed Warris will make it due to injury. Al Ain’s goal scoring appliance Asamoah Gyan and captain of the Black Stars will be leading the attack with Richmond Boakye-Yiadom of Sassuolo and in-form Hearts of Oak captain Mahatma Otoo helping him.
