The 19-year-old midfielder, who made his debut for Inter Milan against Pescara in August, is one of two newcomers named by coach Kwesi Appiah for the match in Lisbon next Tuesday.

The coach has picked a squad of fringe players, resting most of his regulars to look at possible back-up choices as Ghana use the game to prepare for January's African Cup of Nations finals in South Africa, where they meet the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali and Niger in their first-round group.
