EXCLUSIVE: Fit-agin John Boye invited to face Montenegro in next month's friendly
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has invited fit-again Stade Rennes defender John Boye for next month’s international friendly against Montenegro, MTNFootball.com can exclusively reveal.
MTNFootball.com sources at the French Ligue 1 side confirmed the player was told about the call-up national team on Tuesday.
Appiah wants to assess the fitness of the stalwart defender, who recently returned from lengthy injury layoff, as he finalizes his squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Boye will be making a return to team since September last year when he picked up an injury after captaining the Black Stars in an exhibition match against Japan.
The centre-back was in the treatment room battling injuries and underwent surgery to correct a pubis problem.
He played his first top-tier football match two weeks ago when he lasted the entire duration of Rennes’ 1-0 win at Auxerre in the Coupe de France.
But the 26-year-old has not been named Phillipe Montanier’s team for their last Saturday’s Ligue 1 match against Montpellier.
Ghana’s friendly against Montenegro will be played in Podgorica in Montenegro.
It will be the last test match before coach Appiah names his final squad for this June’s FIFA World Cup finals in Brazil.
