The Ghana Deaf Football Federation (GDFF) has invited 26 players for a day’s special justify-your-inclusion exercise to be held at the Osu Salem Junior High School (JHS) on Saturday.
The aim is to select the final squad of the deaf football national team, the Black Wonders, for three separate championships this year.
Head Coach of the team, Winfred Chartey Annan told the Times Sports yesterday that out of the selected team, 22 players would be selected for the triple-header involving the Black Wonders team.

The team will then honour an invitational game in the UK upon the invitation of Everton-in-the Community where they engage the English deaf team. They will be away from August 30 to September 6.
