Hearts of Oak defender Fatawu Mohammed is in the running to start for Ghana in Monday's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against South Africa in Johannesburg.

The right back could be given the nod to play with England-based Andy Yiadom who has been recalled by Championship side Reading.

Head coach CK Akonnor is looking at making changes to his first XI after seven players (based in France, Germany and England) withdrew from the squad due to travelling restrictions to Covid-19 red list countries like South Africa.

Mohammed was a key member of the Phobian squad which won the league and cup double at the end of the season.

He will be chasing his first international cap should he feature against the Bafana Bafana at the FNB Stadium.

Ghana's squad in camp to face South Africa:

Goalkeepers: Richard Ofori, Richard Atta, Manaf Nurudeen, Lawrence Ati-Zigi

Defenders: Philemon Baffuor, Gideon Mensah, Ismail Ganiyu, Alexander Djiku, Jonathan Mensah, Samuel Ashie Quaye, Joseph Aidoo, Fatawu Mohammed

Midfielders: Mubarak Wakaso, Baba Iddrisu, Emmanuel Lomotey, Majeed Ashimeru, Fatawu Issahaku, Samuel Owusu, Yaw Yeboah

Forwards: Andre Ayew, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh, Joel Fameyeh, Braydon Manu, Kwame Opoku, Emmanuel Gyasi.
