Kwarasey Handed Ghana Call Up Against Canada

The Timbers goalkeeper has revealed an invitation to the Black Stars from coach Avram Grant. Ghana goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey has revealed earning a call up for the friendly match against Canada on October 13 in the United States of America. The 27-year-old Portland Timbers shot-stopper met with Black Stars coach Avram Grant in April, fuelling reports that he could return to the national team any time soon after his withdrawal in the wake of issues with former coach Kwesi Appiah during the 2014 Fifa World Cup in Brazil. “I've received an invite for the international friendly against Canada next month here in the USA,” Kwarasey told Goal. “We all want the best for the country so let us wait and see,” he added. The former Stromsgodset goalkeeper will now face competitions from current first choice Razak Brimah of Spanish side Cordoba and Fatau Dauda, who won the 2014 / 2015 Ghana Premier League with Ashantigold. Kwarasey has played 29 games for Timbers in his maiden campaign in Major League Soccer, keeping 11 clean sheets. He is a game away from equalling his all-time best season of 30 matches if he features against Sporting Kansas City on Sunday October 4 at the Providence Park. Ghana are likely to play Peru on October 9 ahead of Canada, according to Goal sources.
