Kwesi Appiah names squad for final World Cup qualifier with Egypt

Black Stars Head Coach Kwesi Appiah has called up twenty-three players for the final Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier with Egypt next month.

The Black Stars will face the Pharaohs in Cape Coast on November 12, 2017, in a match which Kwesi Appiah is expected to use to further assess the development of the team, as Egypt have already secured the sole ticket to Russia from the group.

Skipper Asamoah Gyan returns to the side after missing the team's last two matches through injury.

Meanwhile Atletico Madrid midfielder, Thomas Partey, who captained the Black Stars in the absence of Asamoah Gyan, is suspended for the final qualifier with Egyp due to accumulated yellow cards.
