Stephen Appiah wants John Mensah and Richard Kingson in Ghana squad for World Cup play-offs
Ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah wants John Mensah and Richad Kingson to return to the Black Stars for the 2014 FIFA World Cup play-offs.
Mensah, Ghana’s General skipper, has been inactive since leaving Rennes at the end of the season.
Kingson has returned to active football after signing for Cypriot side Doxa during the transfer window.
Ghana face difficult home and away ties against seven-time champions Egypt for a place in Brazil.
The Black Stars host the Pharaohs in the first leg on October 15 at the Baba Yara and the return between 15-19 November.
Appiah, who quit international football after the 2010 World Cup finals in South Africa, has ruled out rescinding his decision.
But the former Juventus player believes the wealth of experience of Mensah and Kingson will be crucial for the Black Stars.
“No I have no plans to return to Black Stars but I pray the likes of John Mensah, Richard Kingston and other experienced players who are still in active football will find their boot and return to the Stars because the country need them in times like this,” Appiah said.
