Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah is expected to feature in the Black Stars 2018 World Cup qualifier against Congo next month.
Asamoah returns after three years absence in the team following a series of injuries that influenced his decision to take a break from the national team.

According to the report, Asamoah had already told the GFA that he is ready to return to the team and expecting a call-up for the next Black Stars assignment.
The last time Asamoah featured for the Black Stars was at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where off the field issues rocked Ghana’s campaign, despite drawing two-all with eventual winners, Germany at the group stage.
It was widely speculated that the player asked to be excused from the squad that finished fourth at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon, to enable him to focus on his club commitment after returning from injury.
Asamoah, who was speculated to be eyeing a move away from Italy, is expected to stay with the UEFA Champions League finalist, Juventus, following his handler’s decision to return him to his comfortable position in midfield.
