Otto Addo returns for Ghana

Addo is with German side Mainz 05
Germany-based midfielder Otto Addo has been recalled to the Ghana squad for the first time in four years.

Addo was named in the 20-man party that will travel to the USA for a game against Mexico on 1 March.

The game should mark the return of midfielders Michael Essien and Sulley Muntari, who missed the Nations Cup as a result of injury.

Patrick Agyeman, who features English championship side Preston North End, was also invited, alongside Israel-based midfielder Razak Ibrahim.

Ghana's poor showing at the African Cup of Nations, where they were eliminated in the first round, has led to increased pressure on coach Ratomir Dujkovic.

The Serbian is taking the West African side to their first World Cup finals in the summer, where they will face Italy, the Czech Republic and the USA in the group stages.
