Football development has been at a standstill in this country for some time. Our youth teams have been performing badly in competitions at home and abroad. Instead of the GFA looking for sponsorship and investing in sports in this country, they are busy changing names.
According to a report by 3news.com, the Ghana Football Association has made some changes to some of our national teams. These name changes take effect immediately. The local black stars will now be called Black Galaxies giving them a new identity distinct from the senior national team the black stars. Ghana’s Beach Soccer National team has also been named the Black Sharks.
The National U-15 boys team has been named the Black Comets whilst the U-15 girls’ team has been named the Black Damsels. I was beginning to ask myself if these name changes are really necessary. They should rather be concentrating on how to bring back the Colts football system. This system is what will provide our youth teams with players. Beach soccer has been stagnant for some time now.
Nothing seems to be happening. All they could think of is to change names? Are we serious about developing our football? If we don't change our ways, we will not achieve anything significant in the next 15 years to come.
