Hearts of Oak coach Mohammed Polo has launched a scathing attack on some locally-based players describing them as lazy.
There has been a debate on whether home-based players deserve places in Kwesi Appiahâ€™s World Cup squad.
This was after Aduana Stars goalkeeper Stephen Adams became the only player from the Ghana Premier League to make the preliminary squad.
Polo, a member of Ghanaâ€™s 1978 Africa Cup of Nations, believes players in the domestic top-flight need to put in impressive shifts to convince national team selectors.
â€œSome of the players themselves are lazy and do not want to work but yet expect to get call ups from the national team," Polo told Accra-based Power FM.
â€œThis is why it is very important for these players to know that this is their future, career, profession and must work under any kind of situations or conditions.â€™â€™
