Acquah handed late Ghana call-up for Malawi qualifier after Badu injury

Afriyie Acquah has been invited to play for the Black Stars against Malawi next week

Italian Serie A side Parma have confirmed that Ghana midfielder Afriyie Acquah for next’s week 2013 Africa Cup final qualifier against Malawi, MTNFootball can exclusively reveal.

Acquah has earned a late call-up into the Black Stars squad after injury to Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu.

“Italy-based midfielder Afriyie Acquah has been drafted in to replace Agyemang Badu,” a Ghana FA statement read.

The box-box midfielder made a loan switch to the Stadio Ennio Tardini from Paleromo on a season-long loan deal.

He has made three appearances in the Italian Serie A so far.

Acquah will join Ghana’s squad in Nairobi, Kenya where they begin preparations before facing the Flames in Lilongwe on 13 October.

The 20-year-old will be chasing his second cap after debuting this February in an international friendly against Chile.

Last week, Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah released a list of 21 players including two newcomers Daniel Nii Adjei and Mubarak Wakaso.

Ghana hold a 2-0 lead from the first leg played last month in Accra.

    ALUGUNTUGUI COACH AA IS NOT SMART AT ALL,IM SORRY. ON WAT BASIS DID HE RELY ON TO CALL THIS AKROBETO/AREA BURGER LOOK ALIKE? ACQUAH IS NOT EVEN A GOOD MIDFIELDER. HE IS JUST NORMAL PLAYER…..

    INSTEAD OF CALLING ABEYIE OR YARTEY, U CALL WEI?

    • Ghanaman says:

      A right Defensive midfielder was injured so he called another right Defensive midfielder?? Why call attacking when you need defensive??

      • GH FUO, THINK BIG!!! says:

        ghanaman, u have a point there, but look. soccer is soccer AND DAT IS WHY U SEE PLAYERS LIKE KWADWO ASAMOAH, ESSIEN, ETC EVEN PLAYING OUT OF THEIR USUAL POSITION SOMETIMES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE GAME IS TO SCORE. THIS AKORBETO, FUNNY FACE ACQUAH IS A NORMAL PLAYER. HE IS A BORING MIDFIELDER, WITH NO EXCEPTIONAL SKILLS. THEREFORE, CALLING HIM OVER ABEYIE OR YARTEY BEATS ME. I KEEP TELLIN U THAT UR BRAIN IS UPSIDE DOWN IN UR HEAD, BUT U DONT BELIEVE ME. U NEED A CATSCAN/MRI DONE ON UR HEAD MY FRIEND.

    @selfmade:I will be very glad if u can tell ghanaians what GHANAMAN said wrong.Because from my understanding,GH Fuo Earlier said “why not call Abeyie or yiadom instead of Afriyie”.His reply was this:”Abeyie and yiadom are not right hand side defensive midfielders but are attacking players so why did you suggest those names”..I don’t see anything wrong with his comment.charle grow up.

    @ gh fuo,think big…. thanks man,but this ghanaman, was trying to battle selfmade on this forum and i have put him in his right place!!! I have seen a lot of people trying to diss u over here but sometimes i don’t even understand because what u said over here without opinion and if anyone has a problem,he should state his facts too period!!! That common ghanaman said,he is a king on this forum and i laugh in tiv,swahili and spanish!!! He thinks going to the farm to weed 400 acres of a land and killing big fat rats makes one a king,then we give it to him because after all,his small macho akurase body combined with his vertically challenge dirty body is as a result of excessive weeding,harvesting cassavas and pounding fufu in his village!!! These excessive hard labour has damaged his brain makes him delusional!!! Viva the revolutioncion!!
