EXCLUSIVE: Germany-based defender Baba Rahman gains Black Stars recall to face Uganda, Togo
Germany-based defender Baba Abdul Rahman will be named in the Black Stars squad to face Uganda and Togo next month in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.
Friends of the left-back have told Ghana’s leading football news outlet, www.ghanasoccernet.com that he is among the players to be called by coach Kwesi Appiah for the matches in Kumasi and Lome respectively.
The 20-year-old has received a phone call from the Black Stars technical handlers that he will be among the players to be handed their invites for the two matches.
Rahman, who is in blistering form in Germany, has been handed a call-up as coach Appiah seeks to solve the left-back problems in the squad.
The defender scored two goals in the German second tier for Greuther Furth last week before sealing a switch to the top-flight side Augsburg.
The ex-Kotoko defender missed the World Cup because of the presence of other top players but coach Appiah now looks set to hand him the chance to play in that position.
This means Kwadwo Asamoah could be moved upfront because of his creativity especially at the time that key players Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng are suspended.
