Ghana U20 coach Sellas Tetteh has called up 30 players dominated by Premier League clubs to fight for positions in the Black Satellites as they prepare to start the qualifiers for the Africa Youth Championship.
Giants Hearts of Oak, Liberty Professionals, Inter Allies, Berekum Chelsea, Hearts of Lions and second tier clubs Mighty Jets and Tema Youth have two players each in the squad.
Several other Premier League clubs have one player each while lower divisions sides like newly-formed Techman City, who have been impressive in their league matches, also contribute one player each to the squad.
Kumasi-based giants Kotoko have talented youngster Christopher Bonney in the squad while their arch rivals Hearts of Oak have the skillful Joseph O. Bempa and Ishmeal Nortey in the team.
Liberty Professionals striker Tamimu Muntari is making a return to the team after failing to make the final squad of last year’s Black Satellites team.
The five-day training exercise for the first batch will begin on Monday, January 27 and finish on Friday, January 31.
Players called up are to report by 12:00pm at the team’s base at the Jerkings Palace, Adenta-Accra.
