As many as SEVEN home-based players are in line to make the cut for the Black Stars as coach Charles Akonnor prepares to name his squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan today.

Medeama goalkeeper Eric Ofori Antwi is hot favourite to make the squad after a riveting performance for the Premier League leaders.

The statistics and form weighs heavily in his favour after guiding the two-time FA Cup holders to the summit of the league table.

Antwi, who has been number one for the country's Black Satellites, Black Meteors and the Local Black Stars, will be viewed as a natural progression when he makes the cut.

Aduana Stars top scorer Yahaya Mohammed is another player waiting in the wings for a call-up into the team.

Yahaya has scored 10 goals in matches for the Dorma-based side.

His club compatriot Isaac Kwain is also under the radar after an impressive form for the Fire Club.

Medeama striker Prince Opoku-Agyemang has done his reputation a lot of good after scoring nine goals in 11 matches for the Tarkwa-based side so far.

Medeama midfielder Justice Blay, who is on loan from Medeama is also a genuine candidate to make the cut.

Blay has been the key cog of the Asante Kotoko set-up since joining on loan last year. He has bee largely tipped to make the squad.

Ashantigold centre-back Mubarik Yussif and West African Football Academy captain Abukari Ibrahim have all demonstrated that they have the quality to play for the national team.

Coach Charles Akonnor will defend his squad at Tuesday's Press Conference at 11am.
