2022 World Cup Qualifiers: Massive Commitment As 32 Players Join Black Stars Camp In Cape Coast
Thirty-two players have reported to camp for Ghana’s double header FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers this weekend.
The team, currently in Cape Coast, have started preparations for the matches against Ethiopia and South Africa on Friday and Monday respectively.
The number is encouraging for coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor, who has had to make last minute changes to his team due to injuries and travel restrictions.
Deputy captain Thomas Partey, Ajax star Mohammed Kudus and MSK Zilina defender Benson Anang have all been ruled out with injuries.
And Brentford attacker Tariqe Fosu had to stay behind to sort out his club career.
However, coach C.K Akonnor handed last minute call ups to Daniel Kofi Kyereh, Braydon Manu, Fatawu Mohammed and Samuel Ashie Quaye, who have all reported to camp.
