Former Black Stars defender Samuel Johnson has praised the inclusion of three Kotoko players in Ghana's team for the final AFCON qualifier against Kenya in Accra next week.

Coach Kwesi Appiah's 24 man squad for the game against the Eastern Africans includes Kwame Bonsu, Felix Annan and Amos Frimpong of Asante Kotoko following their outstanding performances in the CAF Confederations Cup.

Sam Johnson believes their call up will serve as motivation for other local players.

“It is a very good call, it is good we have these three players in the squad,” he spoke to Atinka FM.

“You will agree with me that they have been doing well for Kotoko and so they deserve it.

“This is the time for them to work hard and keep their position in the team so to serve as a motivation for most of the local players."

The Black Stars will host Kenya in Accra on March 23rd before playing Mauritania three days later in an international friendly.
