Black Stars skipper Asamoah Gyan has been handed a recall to the senior national team for the upcoming 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Sierra Leone despite playing only 35 minutes of competitive football this season.

Asamoah Gyan, Ghana’s record scorer with an impressive 51 goals in 106 appearances returns to the Black Stars fold after being left out of last Month’s disappointing 1-0 loss at Kenya in an African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier.

Asamoah Gyan, 32, has been restricted to the role of substitute this season for his Turkish Super Lig club side Kayserispor after being dogged by injuries following his switch to Turkey in July last year.

According to transfermarkt, his two appearances in the Turkish Super Lig saw him come on for 14 minutes in a 0-0 draw with Malatyaspor before playing for 21 minutes at Gotzepe.

Ghana faces Sierra Leone in a doubleheader – hosting them first on October 11 before traveling away for the return-leg on October 15.

Also returning to the 23-man squad is Deportivo Alaves midfielder Mubarak Wakaso while Andre and Jordan Ayew have been left out again by Coach Kwasi Appiah.

Other returnees include one-year absentee Columbus Crew defender Jonathan Mensah and Atletico Madrid loanee midfielder Bernard Mensah, who is currently Gyan’s teammate at Kayserispor.

All the four teams in the AFCON qualifying Group F have three points after two games but the Black Stars sit top with a superior goal difference of +4.
