John Antwi included as Ghana announce squad for Uganda qualifier
The Black Stars are set to face Uganda in the penultimate game of the World Cup qualifiers on October 7, and a win could massively boost their chances of qualifying for the World Cup if Congo managed to draw or beat the Pharaohs.
The striker spent half a season on loan at Misr El-Maqassa in 2016/17, scoring once in the first half of the season with Al Ahly before netting 10 in the second half with Maqassa, earning another loan move at the start of this season to the league runners up.
A number of notable names are also available for Ghana against the Cranes, including Asamoah Gyan, Christian Atsu, Thomas Partey and Alfred Duncan, however, they will be without the Ayew brothers, who reportedly have fallen out with head coach.
The Pharaohs top the group with two rounds to go with nine points. Uganda come in second place with seven points, Ghana third with five and Congo bottom with a single point.
