EXCLUSIVE: Germany-based defender Baba Rahman gains Black Stars recall to face Uganda, Togo

Germany-based defender Baba Abdul Rahman will be named in the Black Stars squad to face Uganda and Togo next month in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.

Baba Rahman has been in excellent form in the German leagues

Germany-based defender Baba Abdul Rahman will be named in the Black Stars squad to face Uganda and Togo next month in the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, GHANAsoccernet.com can reveal.

Friends of the left-back have told Ghana’s leading football news outlet, www.ghanasoccernet.com that he is among the players to be called by coach Kwesi Appiah for the matches in Kumasi and Lome respectively.

The 20-year-old has received a phone call from the Black Stars technical handlers that he will be among the players to be handed their invites for the two matches.

Rahman, who is in blistering form in Germany, has been handed a call-up as coach Appiah seeks to solve the left-back problems in the squad.

The defender scored two goals in the German second tier for Greuther Furth last week before sealing a switch to the top-flight side Augsburg.

The ex-Kotoko defender missed the World Cup because of the presence of other top players but coach Appiah now looks set to hand him the chance to play in that position.

This means Kwadwo Asamoah could be moved upfront because of his creativity especially at the time that key players Sulley Muntari and Kevin Prince Boateng are suspended.

Do you think Rahman deserves a Black Stars call-up? Make your views known in the box below:

    Baba is the solution to our cronic left back problem but AA hasnt mastered the courage to give him an opportunity to play anytime he invites him.I hope he gives him a chance this time.

  2. Dr Who says:

    My beef with AA is the use of Kwadwo Asamoah at the left back position.Even though he played that role well at the WC,I think our overall team performance would have improved if he was played as an offensive player bcos of his creativity.Lets give others the chance and see what they can offer.The likes of Sclupp and David Addy should also be looked at again.Its bad to assess a player based on one time performance because in football there is always a bad day.Asamoah Gyan was given numorous opportunities before he polished into a fine striker.Ebenezer Assifuah,Frank Acheampong and Richmond Boakye Yiadom,who were fantastic in the U20 WC tournament should be gradually given the chance to fit into the BS.long live Ghana,long live the BS.

    Yes he does and more. He should have even been given the chance to show what he’s got at the World Cup stage, but AA this people denied him that but since they have begin to correct their mistakes now by giving the right players chance to play, then we thank God. Go baba go for Ghana . Good luck player

  8. George Armani says:

    He is welcome to the team.

    Why should GSN depend on friends of Baba Rahman for the story instead of them checking the veracity or otherwise of the story before publishing it?
    Anyway, what has the South-African trio of Kwabena Edusei, Rashid Sumaila and Awal Mohammed got to offer instead of Schlupp, Afful, David Addy etc?
    I am not a prophet of doom but if Kwesi Appiah and his cronies are not careful, Ghana may not qualify for AFCON 2015. I see the Black Stars drawing with the Cranes in Kumasi and losing to the Sparrow hawks in Lome.
    It seems former president Atta Mills died with his blessings because nothing seems to be working under Mahama, even in sports. God bless Ghana!
