Kotoko pair, Danlad Ibrahim and Ismail Ganiyu make a return to the squad. Hearts of Oak skipper, Fatawu Mohammed loses his place.
Arsenal’s Thomas Partey, who missed a place in the squad last time out, returns after being sidelined by injury.
After a year of absence, Alfred Duncan of Fiorentina makes his return to the national team squad.
Daniel Kofi-Kyereh of St. Pauli’s Bundesliga 2, who sparked lots of conversation after making the squad in Akonnor’s last invitations, maintains his place as Braydon Manu loses his place.
