    I have never been soo happy, this squad is very strong and talented, l, ll like 2 see essian droped.

    For once I will say the coach have tried to balance his team sheet with experience and youthful exuberance ..I recommend AA for that.Positions were players could be dropped,it will definitely be one of the full backs and 2 midfielder’s for sure….No need to mentions names one can tell how the final sqd will be and this I will say is so refreshing.
    GO GHANA- GO BLACK STARS

    For me, yes given the circumstances. Although I would have liked Isaac Vorster and Richmond Boakye Yiadom there as well. But on the whole I think it is a strong and fine squad. I think the real deal will be the final 23. It looks like the axe will fall on either 2 or 3 in the midfield with its massive haul of 11 players. Wish all the players good luck and protection from injuries.

I think the real deal will be the final 23. It appears the axe will fall on 2 or 3 players from the midfield which comprise a massive total of 11 players. I will take the opportunity to wish all the players and the squad as a whole good luck and God’s protection from injuries.

    Great work to KA and his technical team. I penciled down a thirty man squad a month ago and 25 of my 30 made KWESSI”s provisional 26 man squad. J Schlupp is the only deviation from my chart. Im @ peace the squad. KA and his team are gona go places if he continues lyk dis.

    Ras Nick, what has Essein done against to advocate for his exclusion. Are you myopic and irrational? What to do you know about soccer to make this senseless suggestion? There is no question about the quality of soccer acumen displayed by the Dr of Soccer(Dr AA) in putting up this list. A list the blends experience and youthfulness. Did you watch the playoff match at kumasi recently, and did you see what Essein used his experience to do? You are an enemy of progress.. never come on this website and write nonesense

    What do you guys think of Dede being used ask a left back in the Ghana Portugal game

  12. Murtala says:

    Unless there is someone out there better.

  13. 21guns says:

    raso nick aasien is the corner stone of the midfield,essien have the experience to handle pressure easily.

    The squad is too good to drop a player

  14. 21guns says:

    I am really happy today, this is the kind of feelings I had when we trash the egypyians

  15. King says:

    @Millinnium well said.perfect squard.drop Essien for who Ras nick or for u hmmmm a3m b3ba dabi

  16. E Boateng says:

    Wiyh my son Rabiu in the team I have no problem. I pray u stay injury free. In all AA haas a good vision even for the future by including some youth.

  17. Henry nkosuo Boakye says:

    may the good Lord increase ur days on earth Akwasi appiah. God richly bless u for standing for nothing but the truth.
    however, I wish Isaac vorsa was added for his height n experience.
    may God save us from injuries.

  18. Selfmade says:

    Good squad but a lot of AVERAGE PLAYERS!

  19. Kobi says:

    I think Stephen Adams, Samuel Inkuom and Rabiu will not make the final 23

  20. Phil says:

    With Isaac Vorsah not 100% fit! this is the best squad Akwasi Appiah could have picked. My faith in the coach has improved immensely , you have picked the squad according to form and experience.

  21. ultimate says:

    sam shd tell me is there any problem b/w Awal Mohammed nd DR.Appiah

  22. cony says:

    Is good!God bless Ghana

  23. Anokwale says:

    Strong selection. I think he will let go of Sumalia, Acquah and Jordan at the end of the day.

    Then again, Adomah and Inkoom could also be put on the chopping block. It is a tough call.

    I think you always have to bring three goalies just in case of any injury….

  24. Eric says:

    This is what KA feels is better for Ghana. In God we trust n with the squad results. God bless Ghana

  25. Goodooos to these best selected stars.What a marvelous selection from the great leader AA.WO Y3 BRUTAAAAL!!!.I think so far these are our best prayers from all over the world.Congratulation AA

    I do not have confidence in the team one bit. If we are to be truthful to ourselves, there are certain players we term experience and what have you, the fact is that they are now spent forces; there is no way they will be able to shine in Brazil. Look, let’s get serious. Almost everybody is praising Kwasi Appiah, but I don’t think he deserves any praise. This is the problem of most Ghanaian coaches, they do favour those they like in most cases for reasons best known to them. He himself knows that there are certain players who are more qualified than many of those he has selected. The World Cup is not a child’s play. And he is saying we should support the players he has selected for them to achieve the ultimate. Prayer does not work when the best material is not available. Anyway, we are all Ghanaians, but I am afraid this team will come back home very early.
