Ghana's No. 1

Jo' Ayew handed debut Ghana call, Muntari axed

Published on: 22 August 2010

Marseille teenager Jordan Ayew has been handed a shock invite to the Ghana national team to play in the Nations Cup qualifier against Swaziland next month.

The Serbian coach Milovan Rajevac once again left out controversial midfielder Sulley Muntari, further confirming that the Inter Milan ace will not be considered in future because of his serious disciplinary problems.

Coffie Bekoe and Yaw Antwi who are currently in good form and impressed in this month's friendly against South Africa will be called for the game.

Youngster David Addy and Asante Kotoko goalkeeper Isaac Amoako have been invited for the 5 September assignment.

Jo' Ayew, 18, has impressed as substitute in the last three matches for the French champions this term.

Jordan will become the third son of African football legend Abedi Pele to play for the Black Stars after brothers Rahim and Andre-both were at this year's Nations Cup and World Cup finals.

He is pushing for more playing time under head coach Didier Deschamps whose side bounced back on Saturday night with a 2-0 home win over Lorient after two straight defeats.

Jordan scored one goal for Marseille in four Ligue 1 appearances last season.
