2021 WCQ: Milovan Rajevac names surprise Black Stars squad to face Ethiopia and South Africa

Head Coach of the Black Stars Milovan Rajevac has named his squad to play in two upcoming World Cup qualifying matches against Ethiopia and South Africa.

Despite returning from injury, Fiorentina’s Alfred Duncan has been left out of the squad, having previously been left out of Rajevac’s first squad.

Jordan Ayew of Crystal Palace was called up despite calls for the out-of-form striker to be dropped, and his brother, Andre Ayew, who recently won the Emir Cup with Al Sadd, was also called up.

Edmund Addo of Sheriff Tiraspol will also get another chance to earn his first Black Stars cap after his club prevented him from joining the squad for the October doubleheader against Zimbabwe.
