Ghana will play Benin later tihs month Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has assured players who have been left out of his latest squad that they still have a future with the Black Stars.


The Serbian named a 22-man squad on Wednesday to face Benin in the 2010 World Cup qualifier against Benin later this month.

Rajevac's team for the game in Kumasi has been praised in many quarters but the exclusion of Egypt-based striker Junior Agogo and winger Haminu Dramani has raised a few eye-brows.

The duo are among some few regular players who have excluded for the game scheduled for 29 March in Kumasi but the Serbian says they will have their chance in future.

"There is a little bigger list that we can choose from but I have my list," Rajevac said.

"Even though I have some players in mind, in football there would be changes as always because of loss of form and injuries.

"I want to set up my team for the first World Cup game against Benin.

"That's an important game we have to win and it's also important to have a large pool to work with."

The Black Stars are seeking to hit the ground running when they take on the Squirrels in Kumasi in the opening game of the second phase of the qualifiers.

Dramani recently left Russian side Lokomotiv Moscow to join rivals Kuban Krasnodar in search of a first team action.

Agogo has suffered bad treatment from his Egyptian club Zamalek and has not seen first team action for several weeks.
