Ghana Announce Initial Squad Ahead Of Bafana Clash

Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, who plays for Steadfast FC, has received a maiden call-up to Ghana’s first team ahead of the Black Stars’ upcoming AFCON qualifiers against Bafana Bafana and Sao Tome and Principe.

The 17-year-old attacker starred for his country at the U20 AFCON finals, where he gained notoriety for an incredible goal from the halfway line in a 4-0 win over Tanzania before he later went on to win the player of the tournament.

Issahaku, who was believed to celebrate his birthday earlier this month, is one of three players to have been added to Ghana’s squad ahead of their international fixtures, though it is very much the young talent's name being in the mix that seems to have excited many.

"The three players will team up with the rest of the squad on Tuesday, March 16, to continue preparation for the two remaining Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
