Rennes defender John Boye makes a return to international duty for Ghana after he was confirmed in the 21-man squad to face Montenegro in next month?s pre-World Cup friendly.
Boye last played for the Black Stars five months when he captained the team to lose to Japan in a friendly.
But he picked up an injury and was sidelined for months and underwent surgery to correct a pubis problem.
The 26-year-old played returned to action two weeks ago when he lasted the entire duration of Rennes? 1-0 win at Auxerre in the Coupe de France.
He followed it up with a 90 minutes of football against Nantes on Sunday-it was his second Ligue 1 appearance of the season.
Ghana coach Appiah wants to assess the fitness of the centre-back as he finalizes his squad for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.
Ghana?s friendly against Montenegro will be played in Podgorica on 5 March.
