FIFA World Cup

Black Stars squad finally revealed.

The national team call ups for the crucial world cup qualifier against Nigeria is finally out. The suspense is finally over. Barely 3 days to the game in Kumasi, the curiosity of Ghanaians was satisfied. Coach Otto Addo together with his technical team consisting of Chris Hughton, George Boateng and Mas-ud Didi Dramani have named a 27 man squad for the encounter. We have 8 new faces but the rest are all well known by the fans. Below are the players who were called for the crunch encounter.

Goalkeeper : Joseph Wolacott (Swindon Town), Abdul Manaf Nurudeen (Eupen), Richard Ofori (Orlando Pirates), Ibrahim Danlad (Asante Kotoko)

Defenders : Andy Yiadom (Reading FC), Dennis Korsah (Hearts of Oak), Gideon Mensah (Girondins Bordeaux), Daniel Amartey (Leicester City), Alexander Djiku (Strasbourg FC), Joseph Aidoo (Celta Vigo), Dennis Odoi (Fulham), Abdul Mumin (Vitoria Guimaraes), Montari Kamaheni (Ashdod FC - Israel)

Midfielders : Baba Iddrissu (Real Mallorca), Edmund Addo (Sherif Tiraspol), Thomas Teye Partey (Arsenal FC), Mohammed Kudus (Ajax Amsterdam), Daniel Kofi Kyere (St. Pauli), Elisha Owusu (Gent).

Wingers : Osman Bukari (Nantes), Joseph Paintsil (Genk), Abdul Fatawu Issahaku (Sporting Lisbon), Yaw Yeboah (Columbus Crew)

Strikers : Dauda Mohammed (FC Cartagena), Felix Afena Gyan (AS Roma), Kwesi Wriedt ( Hosten Kiel - Germany), Christopher Antwi Adjei (Bochum).

I am surprised that Jeffery Schlupp didn't make the squad. He is having an amazing season with Crystal Palace. Maybe the technical handlers knows best. I was also sad that Antoine Semenyo won't make it as a result of injury. He is a very good striker and would have been a great addition to the squad.

Let us hope this guys will get the job done. I can't imagine Ghana missing the world cup again. It won't be joyous for us to watch as Ghanaians.
