Essien to make Ghana return

Recommended Posts

Ghana's Football Association has confirmed that Chelsea's star midfielder Michael Essien has made himself available for international selection.

The 27-year-old temporarily put his Black Stars career on hold in August, saying he wanted to concentrate on recuperating fully from a knee injury, that forced him out of the African Nations Cup and then the World Cup.

He has constantly improved over the current season, showing glimpses of his best as Chelsea have taken the Premier League by storm.

"Essien never said he will not play for Ghana again," Ghana Football Association (GFA) president Kwesi Nyantakyi said.

"He merely asked for time away from the team but has now told us he will be available for selection in March."

Essien's last appearance for his country came during the group stages of AFCON 2010 in Angola, where he played 45 minutes before pulling out. He has so far missed the two qualifiers.
