    Samuel inkoom,Samuel inkoom ,Samuel inkoom ,Samuel inkoom he play for low profile club Anthony Annan might not be playing regularly for schalker 04 but he is better and the most fearless midfielder we have in this generation that why the brazillian coach chose Marcelo a bench player of real Madrid apart from kojo asamoah who plays for juventus non of the other players club is better than schalke04. Agyemang badu is a raw midfielder with no flair ' poor passes non of our midfielders in Europe apart from kojo asamoah and Kelvin boateng can be compared to Anthony annan

    It makes me sick when i hear names like olele, John mensah, Emmanuel frimpong (works at twitter), derek boateng and anthony annan because i do not get it , what have these players done apart from warming benches or serving injuries in one way or the other. They do not even deserve to be in the BS reserve team , let alone the 30 men squad. Apuu!

    Fatau Dauda Daniel Adjei Isaac Vorsah John Mensah Dominic Adiyiah Fatau and Adjei are bench warmers. Football is about form and fitness and the world cup is for players who are physically, mentally and spiritually ready not for players who will rely on past glory or past achievements. Besides the national team is not the preserve of any individual but for all Ghanaians. As such any Ghanaian footballer who is on form currently deserves attention and invitation.
