Chicago Fire attacker David Accam has been handed a late call-up by Ghana coach Avram Grant to replace crocked Mahatma Otoo, GHANAsoccernet.com can confirm. 

The 23-year-old will fly out from the United States to join the rest of the Black Stars contingent who have already assembled in Paris – France.

“Yes I’m leaving for the game. I’m at the airport now,” the player confirmed to GHANAsoccernet.com.

The former Helsingborg IF star returned from injury during the weekend and played his first league game for Chicago Fire.

Accam was not initially part of the 22-man announced late last week but has been brought in as replacement for Otoo who suffered an injury while playing for Sogndal IF in a pre-season friendly.

While he is replacing the Norway-based attacker, Atalanta forward Richmond Boakye-Yiadom has been brought in to take the place of Augsburg defender Baba Rahman who suffered a broken toe.

Accam was part of the Ghana squad that finished second at the 2015 AFCON tournament and played once at the tournament.
