A close confidant of the Ayew brothers has confirmed to Ghana Sports Online the two players have been handed call ups to make the trip with the Black Stars to Ethiopa in a crucial Group F qualifier in Addis Ababa.

Kwesi Appiah suggested in an interview he was going to recall the brothers after Ghana’s disappointing 1-0 loss to Kenya in early September.

“The two players have been recalled by the Ghana coach and they will return to the national team,” the source told Ghana Sports Online.

The return of the duo means some players would lose their spots in the Ghana squad.
