Rashid Sumaila has admitted he is more confident than ever of making Kwesi Appiah's Ghana squad for the World Cup finals.

Sumaila, 22, is a likely candidate to make Ghana’s World Cup squad after impressing for South African side Mamelodi Sundowns.

The defender also played a key role for the Black Stars during the qualifiers for the global piece in South Africa.

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has revealed he has penciled down close to 20 ‘untouchables’ ahead of the tournament and the former Ebusua Dwarfs strong centre-back is confident of making the 23-man squad to Brazil.

“I have also heard about ‘untouchable’ players in the team. It is the prerogative of the coach to decide who he picks for the tournament,” he said

“But as a player you must have confidence in yourself. And so I believe I’m part of the players who will make the trip to Brazil.

“I have no doubt in my mind that I will make the final squad. But that decision will be taken by the coach. But I am confident about my chances.”

Kwesi Appiah has up to end of May to firm up his final squad for the tournament which kicks start in June.
