Ghana boss Nyantakyi thrilled with provisional AFCON squad

Posted On Thursday, 13th December 2012

Kwesi Nyantakyi says he's happy with the provisional squad released by Kwesi Appiah

Ghana boss Kwesi Nyantakyi says he’s happy with the provisional 26-man squad for next year’s African Cup of Nations.

Coach Kwesi Appiah made the announcement at a short ceremony in Accra on Thursday where he unveiled a provisional list of 26-players expected to begin pre- tournament camping in the United Arab Emirates in early January.

The major talking would be inclusion of Amidaus Professionals midfielder  Yahaya Mohammed who has gatecrashed Kwesi Appiah’s squad while Jordan Ayew’s exclusion has sparked massive debate among soccer fans in the West African giants.

But the Ghana FA chief says he is satisfied with the call-ups.

“I am satisfied with the players that he has called up and we’ll give him all the support,” Nyantakyi said

“I would hope this squad will be good enough to win gold.

“The Black Stars belong to all of us and so everyone who has been called up deserve to be in the team.

“Our expectations are that they go out there and make mother Ghana proud.

“We want to win gold regardless of who is in the team.”

      I cannot agree more. All the best guys. Ofcourse people will ask why this player or that player was not included but, at the end of the day only 23 players are needed out of the lot so let us put our differences when it comes to the players each fan wants in the team aside, and support these chosen ones. PEACE!

    Gold for the where? If Asamoah Gyan gets injured…i hope not….we are finished! Cos Yahya isnt a striker…and nobody is talking about it–unless he is the new Sam Johnson!

    But the other strikers…apart from Clottey who can conjure magic on anyday…are amateurs!

    Gold….gold? Did Nyantakyi say gold?….Are u dreaming??”’”mmtcheewww!”

  2. Papa Nkrumah says:

    I was hoping that Jordan and Dede would be chosen or both dropped as they compliment each other and the one still in the team could be affected by the absence of the other. more so, if no reason is given for the axing of the other except to say he believes he the coach has the men to deliver. And Frimpong should have been taken along for the experience at least and his skills at best!

  3. evans says:

    I think even the Nyantakyi does not believe in the list of players that the coach has submitted. he said
    “We want to win gold regardless of who is in the team” that is very important to note.
