Have your say: Who should be in Ghana's midfield for 2013 AFCON

Published on: 5 years ago

Undoubtedly the most competitive department of the Black Stars team, GHANAsoccernet.com assesses the chances of some players in earning a spot in the Ghana midfield for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Kwadwo Asamoah

It’s a no brainer that the Juventus player is top of the list. His skill and passing ability will be greatly required if Ghana is to end the 31-year wait for a fifth African title in South Africa.

Emmanuel Frimpong

2013 Nations Cup might come just too early for him as we are not certain of what we are going to get. But he is a proven string lad and might just get lucky.

    Stop acting like agents. Derek Boateng has played 2 games this year. Acquah should take his spot. Acquah has played more games Yayah Mohammed has not been tested with the team so NO!!!

    Kwadwo Asamoah,Andre Ayew,Mubarak Wakaso,Christian Atsu,Anthony Annan,Afriyie Acquaha and Muntari should dorminate Ghana midfeild...Gyan,Quicy and PYB should lead Ghana attack..

    ENOCH ADU KOFI SHOULD BE CALLED. HES AN EXCELLENT PLAYER. HE PLAYED EXTREMELY WELL AGAINST CHELSEA IN THE UCL GAME LAST NIGHT

    The coach should shift Mubarak Wakaso to left back position because he has played that role excellently before when he featured for the 2007 under-17 world championship. The midfield should have gurus like Anthony Annan, Andre Ayew, Agyemang Badu, Christian Atsu, Kwadwo Asamoah, Derek Boateng, Emmanuel Frimpong and Yahaya Mohammed.

    IF I WERE AA, I WOULD LOEAVE KWADWO ASAMOAH OFF THIS AFCON. HE HAS APPEARED IN OVER 40 GAMES WITH ONLY 1 GOAL AND LIKE 2/3 ASSISTS TO HIS NAME IN A GBSTAR JERSEY. THIS IS UNFIRGIVABLE, UNPARDONABLE AND IT BEATS ME THAT NO ONE IS SEEING THIS. GOING FORWARD....DEDE, AFRIYIE ACQUAH/RABIU CAN PLAY AS ATTACKING MIDFIELDERS. ATSU N WAKASSO ON THE LEFT WING ANNAN AND BADU AS ROAMING MIDFIELDERS FRIMPONG IS NOT READY, NOT CONSISTENT SO PLS DONT CALL HIM TO COME N CAUSE DISTURBANCE ON FACEBOOK N TWITTER. YAHYA IS JUST A CHAN PRODUCT AT THE MOMENT DEREK BOATENG SHOULD BE RETIRED. RETIRE THIS FAKE RASTA FROM GBSTAR. U HAVE PAID UR DUES NOT ITS TIME FOR OTHERS TO TAKE OVER, WAI. GO N PLAY IN THE SEA IF DEREK BOATENG N PAINSTIL WANT. I DONT WANT TO SEE THE SHADOWS OF THESE 2 PLAYERS AT AFCON 2013. I MEAN HOW CAN PPL EVEN THINK OF THESE 2 OLUMEN WHEN THEY PROFESSIONALLY WALLOWED IN MEDIOCRITY AT AFCON 2012? TWEEEAAAA....

    Nyantakyie and Kwesi Appiah are clowns.

    I actually agree that Kwadwo Asamoah might need to go. He is a great player but he does not have the confidence to score and if he is being put behind the lone striker he is supposed to be a scoring threat. If he is going to be on the team, I think he is clearly a defensive mid fielder who would do quite well in front of the back four. When you need him to score it just never happens.

    rasheed, wat is ur point here? both yahya and frimpong have no busimess with GBSTAR, PERIOD. ANNAN MUST GO TO AFCON 2013. HE PLAYS IN THE BEST LEAGUE ON THE PLANET AND EVEN SCORES GOALS WHEN HE PLAYS FOR GH. UNLIKE KWADWO ASAMOAH

    AFRICANUS, FACTS ARE FACTS. IF JOHN MENSAH A HALF FIT CAPTAIN. CAN MANAGE TO SCORE 3 GOALS IN A TOURNAMNT HE BARELY PLAYED A FULL 90 MINUTES IN. THEN WHAT EXCUSE DOES A PLAYER LIKE KWADWO ASAMOAH HAVE OF NOT SCORING? AFTERLL, EVERYTIME HE APPEARS FOR GH, HE PLAYS AS AN ATTACKING MIDFIELDER BEHIND THE STRIKERS. YET HE CANT SCORE. OVER 40 APPEARANCES AND THIS FOOL HAS 1 GOAL AS A GBSTAR PLAYER. I MEAN THIS IS VERY VERY BAD. I HEAR JUVE DONT WANNA LET HIM GO. FINE. WE HAVE WCUP QUALIFIERS N 2014 COMING UP. LEAVE KWADWO FOR JUVENTUS. WE HAVE MORE THAN HUNGRY PLAYERS WHO ARE WILLING TO CHALLENGE AND SCORE SOME GOALS IN THAT ATTACKING MIDFIELDER POSITION. LEAVE KWADWO

    i just dey watch wat will happen Akwasi Appiah. quality players of all standards, we need technically good coach to streamline their ability and agility to bring them together as a unit in what we call a world class team, to be able to become Afcon champions 2013 and perhaps worid champions 2014 insha allah. this is something we can achieve if we blend the right materials with our national support. i rest my case.

    Annan has no place in Osasuna, not even on their bench, so why should he be in the Black Stars?
