Richmond Boakye-Yiadom earns Ghana call-up
Striker Richmond Boakye-Yiadom's decision to leave China and return to Red Star Belgrade has yielded dividends as he has been recalled into the Black Stars for this month's back-to-back 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone..
The 25-year-old left the mega-cash at Jiangsu Sunning to rejoin the Serbian outfit on a two-and-half-year deal.
Boakye announced his return with a brace in the 6-0 drubbing of Radnik Surdulica on his debut.
The former Juventus player was on target in the Serbian derby by snatching the equalizer in the 1-1 draw with Partizan Belgrade.
During the summer, he withdrew from Ghana's squad which played Japan and Iceland in friendlies due to injuries.
