Ghana squad: Richard Kingson makes a return; Muntari, Jordan, Addy recalled

35-year-old Richard Kingson has made a return to the Black Stars set-up after over a two-year absence as Ghana prepare to face Egypt in a 2014 World Cup play-off

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has named a 25-man squad to face Egypt in the 2014 World Cup qualifying play-off.

The biggest talking point is about the return of goalkeeper Richard Kingson who has stayed out of national team duties for over two years.

The 35-year-old recently ended his clubless life by joining Cypriot side Doxa Katokopias, where he has manned the post four times and conceded seven goals.

Sulley Muntari, Jordan Ayew, Emmanuel Frimpong, Jerry Akaminko, David Addy and Baba Abdul Rahman are also returning to the team.

Ghana will take on Egypt on October 15 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi in the first leg.
