Black Stars technical handlers must be of concern about the performance of players especially those in pole position to earn call ups for World Cup. The defense must be one area that cannot be undervalued.
It is compelling that performance of defenders be of huge interest to Otto Addo and his henchmen.
Following the announcement of Salisu Mohammed and others, the Southampton defender was tipped to install quality and competition with those available. But what transpired over the weekend is beginning to raise questions and comers in relation to how Ghana could line up at the back.
Must there be changes or Black Stars coach must go with the usual defenders?
In recent games, Black Stars have had the partnership of Daniel Amartey and Alexander Djiku but the announcement of Salisu Mohammed means he will be competing with these players for starting role.
An own goal scored by Salisu Mohammed over the weekend has ignited discussions about how Black Stars could parade themselves with particular emphasis on the men at the rear.
If changes are not seen on the part of Salisu Mohammed, then it will be a usual business for Daniel Amartey and Alexander Djiku. They may be given opportunities ahead of Salisu Mohammed since club performance in most case makes a strong point in starting a player.
