Ghana’s record goalscorer Asamoah Gyan will return to international duty for the Black Stars in their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sierra Leone, but there are no places in the squad for the Ayew brothers.

Gyan is part of a 23-man squad released by Ghana boss Kwesi Appiah for the mid-October games, despite a season spent largely on the bench at Turkish side Kayserispor. He has played just 35 minutes of club football this season but is one of four forwards named in the side.

In addition to Gyan, there is a return to international duty for Columbus Crew center back Jonathan Mensah after a year out, and a first call up in three years for Atletico Madrid midfielder Bernard Mensah, who is currently on loan at Kayserispor.

Ghana top Group F of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers on goal difference and would be seeking to bounce back from defeat in Kenya when they face Sierra Leone on October 11 in Kumasi, and on 15 October in Freetown.
