Confirmed reports reveal that the Ayew brothers, Andre and Jordan Ayew have gained a return into the senior national team black Stars ahead of the 2019 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Ethiopia on November 18, 2018.
Even though the squad will be offically announced next week, our sources say Black Stars coach, Kwasi Appiah, has finally decided to invite the duo after a peaceful and successful phone conversation with the players sometime last month.
This will be the first time in over a year that the Ayew bothers will be returning to the senior National Team.
Appiah thought their reasons for opting out of Ghana’s last 2018 World Cup qualifier against Congo were questionable especially when the two were back in action at their various clubs days after that international break.
Jordan and Andre have in recent weeks been left out of the Black Stars despite their sterling performances for their club sides fueling the perception that the coach was unhappy with the players because their performances merited a call-up.
The coach had insisted that there was no bad blood between him and the players, adding that his decision to leave out some big-name players in previous call-ups was purely tactical.
Ghana will travel to Addis Ababa to face Ethiopia on 18 November 2018 needing a win to revive their qualifying campaign.
The return of the Ayew brothers is the biggest indication that coach Kwesi Appiah is not leaving anything to chance in the quest to achieve his targets.
The Black Stars are in third place in Group H; four points behind leaders Kenya who have seven but have played two matches less.
