Two England-based players Albert Adomah and Prince Buaben have been added to Ghana’s squad to face Nigeria in a friendly next month.
The Ghana FA has finally agreed to take 20 players for the match on 9 August in London after initially approving only 18 players for the trip.
Winger Adomah, who plays for Bristol City, has been handed his first call-up to impress Serbian coach Goran Stevanovic.
Buaben, who recently joined Watford, returns to the fold after failing to hold down a permanent position in the team previously.
He gets another chance to impress in the midfield dominated by some of the world’s best midfielders.
GHANAsoccernet exclusively revealed the 18-man list on Sunday but added that Albert Adomah and Prince Buaben were on the stand-by because Stevanovic wanted to give them the chance.
Coach Goran Stevanovic wanted to call 20 player for the match against Nigeria on 9 August but budgetary constraints means only 18 players were approved the Ghana FA.

Buaben will be seeking to return to seal a place in the competitive midfield while Adomah, a speedy winger with Bristol City, is fighting for his place for the first time.
