Egypt based Ghanaian striker Nana Poku could be in line for a Black Stars call up ahead of the World Cup qualifier with the Pharaohs on November 13.

The in-form Mirs Elmaqasah striker has bagged in four goals in the qualifiers of this year’s Caf Confederation Cup as his side made their debut.

Poku scored 14 goals last season in the Egyptian league and placed second on the goal king chart.

The 2010/11 Ghana Premier League goal king could be a key figure as Avram Grant looks to hatch a strategy to handle the troubled Egyptians in Alexandria in three weeks time.

Former Kotoko and Petrojet striker Eric Bekoe had earlier hinted that Grant should look at Ghanaian players in the Egyptian league as a masterplan to defeat the Pharaohs.

Ghana drew the opening group game with the Cranes of Uganda making the clash with Egypt a must-win as the Pharaohs triumphed by a lone goal over Congo.
