Milovan Rajevac has announced his team for Ghana’s 2010 African Nations Cup and World Cup qualifier against Sudan on September 6.

20 players have earned call ups by the Serbian coach for the fourth qualifying game in Group D against the Nile Crocodiles at the Ohene Djan Stadium in Accra.

Defender, John Paintsil returns to the squad after missing the corresponding game in Omdurman through suspension. Ghana beat Sudan 2-0 in June.
