HAVE YOUR SAY: Pick your Black Stars XI to face Zambia
Who would you choose from the 26-man squad named by James Kwesi Appiah to start against Zambia on September 6 in the all-important 2014 World Cup qualifier.
Kwesi Appiah is definitely suffering from selection headache with the return of Michael Essien in the central midfield but must fend off competition from Rabiu Mohammed, new-boy Yussif Raman Chibsah and Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu.
AC Milan’s Milan Kevin-Prince Boateng and Andre Ayew are all available to compete with Kwadwo Asamoah, Wakaso Mubarak, Frank Acheampong and Christian Atsu.
Striker Abdul Majeed Waris has also returned from injury.
