Ghana have handed a debut call-up to Arsenal's Emmanuel Frimpong for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan, reports BBC Sport.

The 21-year-old, who is on loan at Fulham, is one of three players called up for the first time by Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah for the 24 March game at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Frimpong has played only twice for Fulham since his January move from Arsenal but will be given the opportunity to compete for a spot in central midfield for the Black Stars.

He was born in Ghana before relocating to England when he was eight. He later represented England at junior level before deciding to opt for Ghana.
