Bright, 18, has been in tremendous form for the Division Two side based in Accra and has been given the call up to endorse his current form.

The young striker who has scored 14 goals in 21 matches is expected to cement a position in the team after training with the side and playing some friendly matches.

Following his swift rise in the Academy, Bright had an invitation to trial with Tunisian side CS Sfaxien but refused to sign a contract with them when he was offered a five year deal.

The youngster who is under the eye of many top European agents has so far produced some brilliant performances for the U20 side in their series of friendly matcjes.

Ghana are currently preparing for the 2019 U20 AFCON qualifiers with either r Algeria or Tunisia who will meet in the first round of the qualifier for the winner to meet Ghana.

And the sharp attacker from Rapid Academy seems the likely candidate to aid Ghana in the qualification stage.

Ghana failed to qualify in 2017 and are keen on securing a ticket this time around.
