Avram Grant has overlooked Latif Blessing when he named the provisional 26-man squad for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Gabon.

Blessing scored 17 goals to win the topsscorer of the Ghana Premier League and was subsequently adjudged the player of the season.

He was invited to join the Black Stars to train at the St. Thomas Aquinas School Park last week during the unofficial training of the team.

However, Grant refused to name him in the Black Stars provisional 26-man squad that will be travelling to Dubai to start camping for the AFCON.

Richard Ofori of Wa All Stars was the only player who made the cut for the 26-man squad.
