Jeffery Schlupp, Salis Abdul Samed, Samuel Owusu and Majeed Asimeru have all been included in the Black Stars provisional 55-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The quartet are among a host of other players including Bayer Leverkusen forward Callum Hudson-Odoi, who are part of the technical team’s pre-tournament squad as the tournament edges closer.

Schlupp last played for Ghana during the World Cup qualifier game against Ethiopia in September 2021, with the Black Stars claiming a 1-0 victory. Since then, the in-form midfielder has been out of the team citing personal reasons.

However, after the Ghana Football Association and the technical team’s talks with the player and his entourage, he is set to make a return to the national team.

In what may seem not a surprising inclusion, Hudson-Odoi could represent the Black Stars in Qatar as he is also named in Ghana’s provisional squad. The winger has been a target for Ghana for some time now and could finally be part of the team.
