Ghana World Cup goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey considering quitting Black Stars
Ghana goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey is considering quitting international football after claiming he was unjustifiably benched at the 2014 World Cup.
The Stromsgodset captain has alleged that team selection at the tournament was not based on merit and that other factors decided who started in matches.
Kwarasey was handed a starting role in Ghana’s Group G opener against USA and despite losing 2-1, he impressed.
The 26-year-old has expressed his frustrations and revealed he might consider his Black Stars future.
“There is no point travelling to Ghana if other things than your performance that decides whether you play or not,” Kwarasey told VG Sporten in Norway.
Kwarasey narrates how he was mysteriously axed from the starting line-up to face Germany in their second match.
“It was hopeless. We had the pre-match meeting four or five hours before the game. At that meeting, I was in the team. Then there was a little bit back and forth and suddenly I was out,” he added.
“I asked why? The coach didn’t look me in the eyes. He just looked down and said sorry. Then I understood that it probably wasn’t his choice.”
