Dunav Ruse right-back Samuel Inkoom has been handed a late call-up to the Black Stars for Ghana's upcoming AFCON 2021 doubleheader this month, according to reports.

The former Asante Kotoko defender is coming in as a replacement for Harrison Afful who has withdrawn from Kwesi Appiah's 23-man for the AFCON 2021 qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe due to injury.

Inkoom has made nine league appearances for Dunav Ruse in the Bulgarian top-flight this season so far.

The 30-year-old has featured 46 times for Ghana, having a single goal to his credit.

The Black Stars will be hosting South Africa at the Cape Coast Stadium on November 14 before travelling to face Sao Tome and Principe four days time.

The match against Bafana Bafana will be Ghana's first official match since the AFCON 2019 early exit in July.

Ahead of the doubleheader, Ghana Football Association have launched a campaign#BringBackTheLove aimed at igniting passion and galvanising support for the Black Stars as they seek to redeem themselves after their disappointing Afcon 2019 campaign in Egypt.
