No local-based player called in Chris Hughton’s Black Stars squad


Ibrahim Danlad is not part of the Black Stars squad named for the AFCON 2023 qualifier against Angola.

Prior to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, two local-based players were selected but since the departure of Afriyie Barnieh to FC Zurich, it was now left with only Ibrahim Danlad.

Despite being a starter for Kumasi Asante Kotoko, the U-20 AFCON champion and best goalkeeper was dropped by the new gaffer of the Black Stars of Ghana, Chris Hughton.

Ghana will host Palancras Negras at the Baba Yara Sports stadium on March 23 before travelling to Luanda on March 27, 2023, for the reverse encounter.

Ghana is on 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 the Central African Republic in June last year.
