Fiorentina midfielder Alfred Duncan has been handed a call up by new Black Stars coach Miovan Rajevac ahead of the World Cup qualifier against Zimbabwe.

He had been overlooked by the former gaffer C.K Akonnor despite playing for various clubs in the Italian Serie A the last few years.

Duncan was in the summer deemed surplus to requirements at Fiorentina but he is now an integral member of the squad.

The defensive midfielder has played in all five matches for his side starting in 50% of those matches this campaign.

He is not been called up by the Black Stars for more than a year for reasons best known to the handlers of the national team within that period but will get the chance to prove his worth when Ghana take on Zimbabwe next month.

The Black Stars will take on the Warriors on Saturday, October 12 at the Cape Coast stadium on match day three of the qualifiers before traveling to Harare three days later for the reverse fixture.
