Bolivia based David Akologo, Nordsjaellands Ibrahim Osman, France based Nathaniel Adjei, and Diomande Mohammed of Rangers of Scotland have been named in Ghana’s 27-man squad for this month's international friendly against Nigeria and Uganda.

The friendly games scheduled for Marrakech, Morocco marks the beginning of the new era under Otto Addo.

Brighton and Hove Albion right back Tariq Lamptey is back in the squad after recovering from an injury that ruled him out of the Africa Cup of Nations in Cote D’Ivoire.

Left back, Patrick Kpozo, winger Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, and midfielder Edmund Addo have also made a return to the team.

Captain Andre Ayew, forward Jordan Ayew, Mohammed Kudus, Osman Bukari, Samed Abdul Samed, and Elisha Owusu have been named in the squad.

Ghana will take on Nigeria on Friday, March 22, before facing Uganda four days later.
