SuperSport United’s Ghanaian defender, Edwin Gyimah, has been called up to the national team to replace John Boye.
Boye was recently ruled out of the upcoming World Cup qualifying playoffs against Egypt and the Black Stars’ head coach, Kwesi Appiah, has decided that Gyimah is the right man to replace him.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form for Matsatsantsa in recent months, playing a vital role as they climbed their way to the top of the PSL table in the early stages of their 2013/14 campaign.
Now it seems that the defender’s efforts have not gone unnoticed and he will be hoping to help his nation overcome Egypt to qualify for next year’s World Cup finals.
SuperSport’s head coach, Cavin Johnson, is said to have read Gyimah’s call-up out loud to the entire squad when he received it, showing how proud he was of the Ghanaian for being recognised by his nation.
