Milo's matchmakers for Zambia: Appiah returns

Ghana's coach Milo Rajevac has named his squad for next week's Zambia game in England. The main item of interest here is that Stephen Appiah, though clubless, has been called back into the team despite the fact that he was heavily criticised for what many thought was a disastrous performance due to his clubless state.

Remember he also opted out of the Sudan/Mali games because he said he was having some personal issues - which I felt was misplaced. Apart from that and the fact that Muntari and Laryea are also on the return, there's nothing really special about the list.

Goalkeepers: Richard Kingston (Wigan Athletic, England), George Owu (Al Masry, Egypt)

Defenders: John Paintsil (Fulham, England), Samuel Inkoom (Basel FC, Switzerland), Harrison Afful (Asante Kotoko, Ghana), John Mensah (Lyon, France), Eric Addo (Roda JC, Holland) Isaac Vorsah (Hoffeinham, Germany)

Midfielders: Stephen Appiah (Unattached), Michael Essien (Chelsea, England), Anthony Annan (Rosenborg, Norway), Sulley Muntari (Inter Milan, Italy) Kwadwo Asamoah (Udinese, Italy), Laryea Kingston, (Hearts, Scotland) Opoku Agyemang (Al Sadd, Qatar), Haminu Draman (Russia)

Strikers: Asamoah Gyan (Rennes, France), Mathew Amoah (NAC Breda, Holland), Prince Tagoe (Hoffeinham, Germany) and Eric Bekoe (Egypt)
