The 26-year-old goalkeeper, born in Bristol, missed the World Cup due to a finger injury but is expected to start against Angola if declared fit, as he is the first-choice goalkeeper.
Lawrence Ati-Zigi, who played in Qatar and gave a positive account of himself, remain the team’s second-choice goalkeeper.
The Black Stars aim to secure a victory on Thursday, maintaining their lead in the qualifying group before travelling to Luanda for a rematch against Angola on Monday.
