Ghana will be without German-based defender Stephen Ambrosius when they play South Africa and Sao Tome in the next two AFCON qualifier matches against South Africa and Sao Tome later this month.
The budding talent of Bundesliga 2 side Hamburger SV has also been invited by German Under 21 coach Stefan Kuntz for their impending games against Hungary, Netherlands and Romania.
This, Ambrosius, has opted to honour the Germany U21 call-up ahead of his maiden Black Stars call-up.
The Ghana Football Association Communications director Henry Asante Twum during an interview with Kumasi-based Hello FM on Saturday morning confirmed that Stephen Ambrosius is currently out of the Black Stars team that will play South Africa and Sao Tome.
Despite the central defender choosing the German U21s over Ghana, he will be still eligible to play for the Black Stars when he finally decides to switch nationality future.
Ghana will take on South Africa on March 25 in Johannesburg before engaging Sao Tome and Principe on March 29, 2021 at the Accra Sports stadium.
The Black Stars sit at the top of Group C with 9 points and are in search of one of the tickets to the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
