Beitar Jerusalem striker Richmond Boakye Yiadom has been awarded a Ghana selection for 2022’s Africa FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa this month. According to Ghanasoccernet source.
The 28-year-old has returned to the team after an absence of three years, after his last appearance at the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
The former Juventus player and Red Star Belgrade striker has been recalled by coach Milovan Rajevac to play in the double header game against two nations.
Yiadom is a seasoned scorer who will add a bit to the attacking in the Black Stars.
In the wake of Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew having had a tough time of late, Yiadom could be the person to help turn things around.
Ghana must defeat Ethiopia or South Africa to qualify for the Africa World Cup playoffs and have a possibility of qualifying for in 2022’s World Cup in Qatar.
The four-time African champions will have to beat Ethiopia in South Africa and South Africa at the Cape Coast Stadium.
Log leaders Bafana Bafana will play Zimbabwe on the pitch of FNB Stadium on November 11, 2021. Three days after, the team will travel to Ghana to play The Black Stars on November 14.
