Ghana defender Harrison Afful is in line to earn a call up into the Black Stars following an impressive season with Tunisian giants Esperance.
The 23-year-old has earned rave reviews on the continent after he rifled in an astonishing left footer to help the Tunis-based side win the 2011 Caf Champions League against WAC.
His performance has alerted a host of top European clubs to enquire about his availability with calls for his inclusion into Goran Stevanovic’s 23-man squad.
Many Ghanaians believe the ex-Asante Kotoko defender has paid his dues to be re-admitted into the set-up for the first time in over a year.
Afful played a regular figure in the Black Stars qualifying campaign to the 2010 Africa Cup of Nations in Angola and was on the bench at the finals.
Serbian trainer Stevanovic is expected to announce his final squad for the biannual showpiece in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea on 15 December.
