New Black Stars coach Chris Hughton has shockingly handed out of form Ghana midfielder Edmund Addo a call-up to play for Ghana against Angola.
The midfielder has not been that active since he left Moldovan giant FC Sheriff Tiraspol but has made it to Ghana’s squad for the AFCON Qualifiers against Angola in Kumasi and Luanda.
Addo has played only six games this season for his new club Current Team FK Spartak Subotica in the Serbia Super Liga.
Ghana will play Angola in a double header this month in search of a ticket to the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations slated for Cote D’Ivoire in January next year.
The Black Stars will host Palancras Negras at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on Thursday, March 23 before travelling to Luanda on March 27, 2023 for the reverse fixture.
Ghana are joint top of the Group E table with 4 points from two games following a 3-0 win over Madagascar and a 1-1 draw with Central African Republic in June last year.
