Quincy Owusu-Abeyie well play for Ghana at the Nations Cup

Hosts Ghana have included Dutch-born striker Quincy Owusu-Abeyie in their final squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Owusu-Abeyie was only cleared to play for the Black Stars by Fifa, football's world governing body, hours before the squad was announced.

The striker, who plays for Celta Vigo in Spain, had a superb showing for Holland as they hosted the Under-20 World Cup in 2005 but then applied to play for the Black Stars last year.

But Ghana coach Claude Le Roy has dropped in-form defender Francis Dickoh, while Matthew Amoah and Daniel Opare miss out through injury.

Ghana squad:

Goalkeepers: Richard Kingson (Birmingham City, England), Sammy Adjei (Ashdod, Israel), Fatau Dauda (Ashantigold)

Defenders: John Pantsil (West Ham, England), Nana Kwasi Asare (FC Mechelon, Belgium), John Mensah (Rennes, France), Alhassan Illiasu (FC Saturn, Russia), Harrison Afful (Asante Kotoko), Hans Adu Sarpei (Bayern Leverkusen, Germany)

Midfielders: Anthony Annan (IK Start, Norway), Eric Addo (PSV Eindhoven, Holland), Michael Essien (Chelsea, England), Bernard Kumodzi (Panionios FC, Greece), Laryea Kingston (Hearts, Scotland), Haminu Draman (Locomotiv Moscow, Russia), Sulley Muntari (Portsmouth, England), Andre Ayew (Olympique Marseille, France), Ahmed Barruso (AS Roma, Italy)

Strikers: Asamoah Gyan (Udinese, Italy), Baffuor Gyan (FC Saturn, Russia), Junior Agogo (Nottingham Forest, England), Quincy Owusu-Abeyie (Celta Vigo, Spain), Kwadwo Asamoah (Liberty Professionals)
