    I agree with you. Lee Addy should be reviewed. I think he can do a better job. I am not discounting David Addy, but I would prefer Lee Addy. May the best man be picked.

    My call-up hopefuls: Adams, Adusei, Ainoosen, Assifuah, Acheampong. Assess them to see if they fit.

    Be careful Kwesi is choosing slow pace defenders whose recovery rate is suspect.

    Good call up.. Addy has the experience and currently is our best active left back. Also he plays in the portuguese top flight, so he is used to our portuguese opponents, good choice AA. God luck Addy

    Be careful Kwesi is choosing slow pace defenders whose recovery rate is suspect. Ghana is in the toughest world cup group ever and the teams we are meeting are quick pace teams. Get defenders who can match the Ronaldos boot for boot and I think Lee Addy is one of such players.
