President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt Okraku believes Ghana must be part of the best teams in Africa after playing the last two games. He posed confidence in the players to do the country such honor. 

The Black Stars of Ghana are preparing fervently for the impending Afcon qualifiers against South Africa and São Tomé and Principe. 

The preparations started with a call up of 32 local players for the first phase. The number of players was slashed by Black Stars head coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor. 

The second week of training was ushered in and players were assessed on daily basis. The list was further pruned down as days goes by.

Timing and preparations for the game necessitated the postponement of the start of the second round of the Ghana Premier League. This, was believed to afford the team enough concentration towards the two games. 

At the tail end of the preparation, a new list of players was announced, as it was dominated by foreign based players. Others are expected in camp as the number could increase with few days to go. 

This was met with massive backlash from the public over the significant drop in the number of local players.

This generated varied responses from football loving fans. 

 

Kurt Okraku’s call

 

The President of the Ghana Football Association, through his official Facebook page, looks ahead to Ghana being part of the best teams in Africa after two games.

 

“Over 2 games, Ghana must be part of the best teams in Africa ...These boys will do us the honour...”

 

This statement from the GFA capo is expected to motivate the players to deliver and grab a ticket for African Cup of Nations. 

Head coach Charles Akonnor and his lads continue to put final touches on their preparation, as they look ahead to winning the two matches.
