Rashid Sumaila takes Black Stars exclusion in good faith

Rashid Sumiala failed to make final cut for Nations Cup

By Ameenu Shardow

Defender Rashid Sumaila has taken his exclusion from the Ghana squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in good faith.

The 20-year-old failed to make the final 23-man cut for this month’s tournament in South Africa.

The Asante Kotoko defender emerged the only casualty following earlier exclusions of Yahaya Mohammed and Andre Ayew through injuries.

The ex Ebusua Dwarfs player though gutted not to be making the final squad, says his exclusion will inspire him to work harder in order to make a quick return to the side.

“I take my exclusion from the Black Stars squad in good faith,” he said.

“This is football and I am mindful of the fact that only 23 players are required for the Nations Cup.

“I am disappointed but I will work very hard so that I get into the team again.”

The now intact Black Stars team will play Egypt in a friendly match on Wednesday before facing Tunisia in another warm up game three days later in the UAE.

The team will then travel to South Africa on January 16 – four clear days ahead of their opening Group B game against DR Congo.
