Ghanaian defensive pair Rashid Sumaila & Akaminko have profited from Kwesi Appiah’s return as Black Stars coach after being named in the squad for next month’s triple-header.
Akaminko, who plays for Turkish side EskiÅŸehirspor, is making a return to the team after a three-year absence.
The 29-year-old has not played for the West African since he suffered a career-threatening injury during a friendly against the Netherlands in 2014.
The towering centre-back alongside compatriot Rashid Sumaila return from international wilderness under the new Ghana coach.
The two players formed a solid defensive partnership during Appiah’s first stint and could be revived after being named in the squad for next month’s triple-header.
The Black Stars will take on Ethiopia in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at home on June 11 before playing Mexico and USA in an international friendly on June 28 and July 1 respectively.
Ironically, spiritualist Malam Isaka Salia accused Kuwaiti-based Rashid Sumaila of masterminding Akaminko’s injury three years.
