Heart’s left fullback Dennis Korsah earns debut call up to Black Stars ahead of Nigeria clash.


Hearts of Oak defender Dennis Korsah has reportedly been included in the Black Stars squad for the World Cup playoff against Nigeria.

The left-back has been impressive since joining the Phobians earning him a maiden Ghana call up ahead of the crucial encounter on Friday.

Dennis Korsah is expected to replace Baba Abdul Rahman who is yet to pass a late fitness test, having been out with an injury for weeks.

Bordeaux defender Gideon Mensah is also in the squad to play Nigeria.

Otto Addo and his assistants Mas Ud Didi Dramani and George Boateng will be speaking on their team to face Nigeria, the plan for the game and how to approach the match on Friday.

The Black Stars will host Nigeria in the first leg of the crucial encounter on March 25, 2022 before travelling to Nigeria four days later for the second leg.

The delay in the announcement of the squad has left many fans of the Black Stars in suspense, but the Ghana Football Association insists it is a strategy to keep Nigerians off the Ghanaian squad.

Meanwhile, an itinerary has been drawn, and players are expected to be in Ghana by the end of Monday. The team will travel to Kumasi on Tuesday to begin training before Friday’s encounter.

The Black Stars will be hoping to make a return to the competition after missing the World Cup in Russia four years ago.

The winner of the two-legged game will grab one of the five tickets allotted Africa for the tournament in Qatar later this year.
