Avram Grant invites local-based duo to join Black Stars squad


Two locally based forwards, Abednego Tetteh and Emmanuel Ocran have been handed late call ups to join the Black Stars squad for this weekend’s African Cup of Nations qualifier against Rwanda.

The Wa All Stars and Aduana Stars’ forwards who both scored hat tricks for their respective sides in last weekend’s Ghana Premier League matches, will join Coach Avram Grant’s squad as they continue preparations for the final qualifying match.

Thirteen (13) out of the 23-man squad reported to training on Tuesday when the team held its first training session.

Due to the delays on player arrivals and with some invited Ghana internationals expected to complete transfer moves from their clubs, Coach Grant has asked Tetteh and Ocran to join the squad for the game against the Amvubi.

The Black Stars who are leading Group H with 13 points will play their Rwandan counterparts at the Accra Stadium on Saturday September 3.

The team will then depart for Russia where they will face the Golden Eagles of Russia in an international friendly scheduled for Tuesday September 6.
