Former Hearts of Oak sensation, Torric Jibril has been named in Ghana's squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome.

The 25-year-old who is making waves in the Congo with African giants TP Mazembe has been included a 23-man squad for two qualifying matches against South Africa and São Tomé and Príncipe.

Debut call-ups have been handed to goalkeeper Razak Abalora, Spain-based duo Iddrisu Baba and Mohammed Salisu, German-based Christopher Antwi Adjei as well as AshantiGold skipper Shafiu Mumuni, who won golden boot at the WAFU Cup of Nations.
