Gershon Koffie handed debut call-up to face Mexico and USA
New England Revolution midfielder Gershon Koffie has been handed a late Black Stars call-up for the friendlies against Mexico and USA.
His invitation increases the rank of MLS players for the two exhibition matches to five- David Accam (Chicago Fire) and the Columbus Crew trio of Harrison Afful, Jonathan Mensah and Mohammed Abu.
Koffie, who has returned to the MLS for a loan stint from Swedish side Hammarby, gets to his maiden senior national team call-up.
He has walked straight into the New England team and has made six appearances.
The former Inter Allies player was a member of the Ghana U20 team at the 2011 African Youth Championship in South Africa where they failed to progress from the Group stage.
