Afriyie Acquah earns late call-up to join Black Stars

The Torino central midfielder has been handed a late call-up to the Black Stars to replace injured Isaac Sackey


The Black Stars will face the Red Devils of Congo on Friday 1st September, 2017, before they go for the reverse fixture in Brazzaville in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Afriyie Acquah was snubbed for the first time since he became a regular player of the senior national football team of Ghana.


However, he has been recalled to the team after Isaac Sackey picked up an injury while playing for Turkish Super Lig side Alanyanspor.

The Black Stars opened camping on Monday in Kumasi and 11 out of the 24-man squad announced last week turned up for their recovery training after their arrival.

Afriyie Acquah's future at Torino has been in the balance, having been linked with a move to English club, Brmingham, with offers from the latter having been rejected by the Italian outfit, according to reports.
