The 19-year old has been handed a call up by Coach Karim Zito for the aforementioned tournament, making him the only foreign player handed invitation.

Sulley is expected to arrive in Ghana later today and will immediately join his teammates at the GFA Technical Centre (GSCE) in Prampram.

The former Great Olympics midfielder is expected to add experience to the side having previously featured in the competition in 2019 in Niger, where Ghana was knocked out in the group.
