Rajevac without key players in Ghana squad

Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has included Andrea Ayew and Quincy Owusu-Abeyie in a 20-man squad to take on Tunisia in an international friendly next week.

Lorient midfielder Ayew last played for the Black Stars in the semi-final of the African Nations Cup earlier this year, while Birmingham forward Owusu-Abeyie was dropped from the last squad due to poor form and attitude.

The pair are named alongside another bad boy Hans Sarpei, who is recalled for the first time since he walked out of the team earlier this year.

The four notable absentees for the November 19 tie are Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, John Mensah and Laryea Kingston, all of whom are sidelined with injuries.

Rajevac will use the game in Accra to prepare the team for the final round of 2010 World Cup qualifying which begins next year.

Ghana have been drawn in Group D alongside Mali, Sudan and Benin, who they host in their opening qualifier on March 29.

Squad: Richard Kingson (Wigan), Goerge Owu (El Masry); John Pantsil (Fulham), Hans Sarpei (Bayer Leverkusen), Samuel Inkoom (Asante Kotoko), Jonathan Mensah (Kaizer Chiefs), Eric Addo (PSV Eindhoven), Jonathan Quartey (Kaizer Chiefs); Daniel Yeboah (Liberty Professionals), Agyemang Badu (Berekum Arsenal), Haminu Dramani (Lokomotiv Moscow), Stephen Appiah (unattached), Samuel Kyere (Arab Contractors), Jordan Opoku (Asante Kotoko), Andre Ayew (Lorient), Quincy Owusu-Abeyie (Birmingham); Junior Agogo, (Zamalek), Matthew Amoah (NAC Breda), Sam Yeboah (Hapoel Tel Aviv), Prince Tagoe (Al-Ittifaq).
