Ghana's Italian contingent heads list for AFCON

Posted On Sunday, 16th December 2012

Udinese's Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu will be part of Ghana's contingent

The tough leagues of Italy and France will provide Ghana’s highest number of players for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The two countries will provide three players each that forms part of the Black Stars squad for next month’s tournament in South Africa.
This follows coach Kwesi Appiah’s release of his 26-man squad for Africa’s flagship football competition.
Previously most players of the Black Stars came from the England and France but now the Italian Serie A is looking like a good destination for Ghana’s top players.
The Serie A has consistently provided good players for the Black Stars from the likes of Samuel Osei Kuffuor, Gargo Mohammed and Stephen Appiah.
This year AC Milan don’t have to worry about losing Sulley Muntari for the African Cup of Nations, but Ghana have called Juventus and Udinese stars.
There were concerns that Muntari’s comeback six months after surgery would see him waltz off almost immediately for the tournament in January and February.
However, he is not included in the squad list for Ghana, so can act as a replacement for Nigel De Jong.
There are other Serie A players called up for Ghana, such as  Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah and Udinese’s Emmanuel Agyemang Badu.

Sassuolo striker Richmond Boakye is also included.
