Yusif Chibsah marked his debut for the Black Stars

Parma midfielder Yusif Rahman Chibsah marked his debut for the Black Stars as they came from behind to draw 2-2 against Turkey in an international friendly on Wednesday night.

Chibsah replaced Evian enforcer Rabiu Mohammed in the 60th minute and put up a solid display from the heart of the centre.

Burak Yilmaz opened the scoring for the home side at the Ataturk stadium in Istanbul as early as the 7th minute.

The Turks increased the tally with the second through Umut Bulut 21 minutes later to send the home fans agog.

Ghana trainer Kwesi Appiah made changes in the second and it paid off as striker Asamoah Gyan scored two world class goals to put the home side to sleep.

The Ain attacker reduced the deficit in the 62nd minute with a classic powerdriver that beat goalkeeper Volkan Demirel.

The former Sunderland hitman pulled the Ghanaians on level pegging with the equalizer and his second on the night to cement his goal scoring prowess at the international level.

The comeback display of the team will boost the morale of the team ahead of next month’s World Cup group decider against Zambia in Kumasi.

  7. Wid the absence of KPB, AYEWS, ESSIEN, WARRIS MUNTARI, Turkey have strugle with us with all their best players the lyks of ARTINTOP, ADAN THURAM,
    NURI SAHIN, YAMAZ, etc. All playin regular in europe.
    It was also played at their own backyard. This is a sign of warning to any team that want to play Ghana not talkin of zambia cos ur best is 3 goals to natin infavour of Ghana. We talkin of a team lyk Germany, Spain, England and not zambia.

    kwasi Appiah why you don’t want to use Mahatma Otu? is it because he comes from hearts of aok. shame unto you.

    • Ghanaman says:

      Otoo played and he was horrible. He needs to improve a lot in before he gets another call up. By the way, he is no longer on Hearts of Oak but is in Norway. Let’s see how he does?

  13. gentlenorb says:

    can someone tell me why Tettey drop chibsah…. the guy was too good

  14. Godbless says:

    That Chibsah guy is gonna be a very great player. He is very confident on the ball and has great foot works and dummies for a defensive midfielder. He was the missing link in the U20 squad. He is just like his counterparts Coufie of Genoa and Afriyie Aquah who made a very wrong move last January but now his team mate as a loan player. We have great up and coming players in Italy which is very good due to their technical abilities.
