The five players were initially in the 32 man provisional list announced by new Black Stars head coach Milovan Rajevac .

The Ghana Football Association have announced that the technical team have excused the above mentioned players from the Ghana squad that will face Zimbabwe in the World Cup double header.

Alfred Duncan played for Fiorentina last weekend in their 2-1 loss to Napoli in the Italian Serie A despite reports stating that he was not fit.
