Black Stars: Otto Addo hands debut call ups to five players for September friendlies

Black Stars coach, Otto Addo, has handed debut call-ups to five new players in his 29-man squad to face Brazil and Nicaragua in pre-world cup friendly games in France and Spain respectively.

Tariq Lamptey (Brighton), Inaki Williams (Athletic Bilbao), Stephan Ambrosius (Karlsruher) and Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer, have all received invitations after recently switching nationalities to represent Ghana.

Mohammed Salisu (Southampton), who has repeatedly turned down call-ups, has also been named in the squad.

Hearts of Oak winger, Afriyie Barnieh, is the only Ghana-based player named in the squad, a reward for his fine performances for the Black Galaxies in recent months.
