Ghana players were on Thursday morning schooled by a FIFA referee before they begin their  2014 World Cup campaign.

The reason is to educate players on the rules of the game and help make the tournament a clean one.

The Black Stars arrived in Maceio on Wednesday night after a +10 hours flight from Washington en route Salvador.

Ghana will hold its first public training session at the Estadio Rei Pele on Friday where 10,000 tickets have been given out for free to fans to watch them train.

    The defenders should pay particular attention since their actions will decide our fate.

  2. A concernedcitizen... says:

    All the players should pay attention to avoid unnecessary yellow and red cards. to let the team down.

  3. GHANSON says:

    Useless meeting… we shouldve opted out.. There ain’t no new rules in football… This is just another attempt to intimate our boys but we all know their ways so it won’t work… they should go and school Suarez n Co not to grab goal bound balls w their hand n not to bite anyone..

    I am glad the referees have been given the opportunity to educate our players. They need humility training notably Sulley Muntari; my best player of all time but very unethical on the pitch by throwing off his hands at referees calls.
    Second and most silly of all is Daniel, Opari who throw his hands at every call.
    If these players will humble themselves some referees will aid them but if they do otherwise most referees will hurt them and hurt the whole nation.

    Our hearts are deeply with the black stars and they must understand that all Africans will be watching them and such acts of insubordination must cease.

    most of these changes are taking effect immediately prior to the worldcup-some member associations (FA -e.g. US Soccer Federation ) didn’t change the laws or chose not to amend them since these laws were approved by FIFA in the middle of the last football season.
