thumbnail Hello,

Back in the national colours are defender Harrison Afful and striker Dominic Adiyiah, who were dropped in previous iterations for poor performance, but Asamoah Gyan is still out

Nine home-based players have been given a call-up to the Black Stars ahead of their 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Lesotho and Zambia. However, coach Kwesi Appiah’s 30-man squad was without striker, Asamoah Gyan, who has been on an indefinite break from international football. Andre Ayew, who had a shoulder surgery recently, was also omitted.

Al Ain's star forward was tipped to make a return to the four-time African champions' squad this June after having met with coach Appiah, but his absence in the latest list gives room for more speculations.

After years of being left out in under previouscoaches, Esperance defender Harrison Afful is making a comeback alongside Arsenal Kyiv’s striker Dominic Adiyiah.

Six players were handed their maiden senior national team call-ups including Europe-based youngsters Ishmael Yartey and Christian Atsu. Berekum Chelsea trio, Ernest Sowah, Emmanuel Clottey and Richard Kissi Boateng, are among the nine domestic faces making the list.

The team will start a non-residential camp in Accra on 21 May, 2012, according to the FA official website. The squad will be pruned before the team departs to Kumasi on 27th May ahead of the match against Lesotho on 1st June, 2012.

Ghana face Lesotho in Kumasi for Appiah's first game before they play Zambia on June 9 in Ndorla.
