Baba Rahman recovers from illness ahead of Chile clash at Kirin Cup

Chelsea defender Baba Rahman is set to make his 45th appearance for Ghana after being declared fit for the game against Chile.

Black Stars will face Chile in a third-place playoff at the Panasonic Stadium Suita in the Kirin Cup on Tuesday morning.

The left-back is expected to return to the starting lineup against South Americans after missing Ghana’s semi-final match against hosts Japan last Friday.

Rahman was unable to participate in the game due to illness, but he is now fully recovered and set to take over the left-back position.

His return is a boost for coach Otto Addo, who is hoping for a win to at least make up for Ghana’s humiliating 4-1 loss to Japan.

The experienced Rahman was missed, and his replacement, Hearts of Oak defender Dennis Korsah, struggled to deal with the Japanese’s ferocious attack.

If he plays on Tuesday, it will be his 45th appearance for Ghana since his debut in 2014, making him one of the longest-serving members of the current squad.

Rahman established himself as the team’s first-choice left-back, featuring in four Africa Cup of Nations tournaments. He was instrumental in the team reaching the final and losing to Ivory Coast in 2015.
