Otto Addo names 33-man Ghana squad for Afcon qualifiers, pre-World Cup friendlies

Coach Otto Addo has called up thirty-three players for next week’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Madagascar and the Central African Republic.

The Black Stars will also take part in a 4-nation tournament that features Japan, Chile, and Tunisia as part of the build-up to the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 in November. Captain Andre Ayew who missed the World Cup playoffs against Nigeria has returned to the squad after serving his two-match suspension.

Also, returning to the squad are Mubarak Wakasso, Jonathan Mensah, and Kamaldeen Sulemana. The three players have not featured for the Black Stars since the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon. Accra Hearts of Oak’s Daniel Afriyie Barnieh and Bechem United’s Augustine Okrah have also been included in the squad.

Ghana will take on Madagascar on Wednesday, June 1 before taking on the Central African Republic four days later. With the World Cup around the corner, Otto Addo will lead his charges to a four-nation tournament in Japan as part of preparations for the FIFA World Cup.
