Black Stars coach, Milovan Rajevac, has clarified the justification for not utilizing in-structure forward Joel Fameyeh in the game against Zimbabwe on Saturday, October 9, 2021.
The Orenburg striker didn’t make the 23-man crew for Saturday’s triumph, however the Serbian coach has not governed him out of the second leg in Harare.
Fameyeh has been probably one of Ghana’s best attackers in Europe and dazzled during C.K Akonnor’s spell.
“He is not injured, it is just a situation we had and we needed to excuse few players as we could only register 23 players for the match and we needed to invite more players because of the COVID,” responded Milovan Rajevac to questions over the absence of the striker.
“They should be proud but it is always a tough decision to choose somebody you think is more appropriate for some games. It was a Coach’s decision. It doesn’t mean they are not in contention for the next match. They are with us and part of the team,” he added.
Mohammed Kudus, Thomas Partey, and captain of the Black Stars Andre Ayew goals gave the Black Stars an important win in Ghana at the Cape Coast sports stadium.
As the 2022 World Cup qualifiers progresses, the team will face the same side on Tuesday, October 12, in Harare.
