Congratulations to Shrewsbury Town striker Derek Asamoah has been handed an international call up by Ghana which will see him miss tonight’s League Two clash with Macclesfield at Gay Meadow.

The ex-Lincoln City, Mansfield Town and Chester City forward is part of a 19-man squad which travels to the far East this week to take on South Korea and Japan in two important ties for the side.

City fans will remember Asamoah as Chester’s loan savour at the end of last season. Sadly, the pint sized striker didn’t do enough to impress City boss Mark Wright and earn a permanent contract.
