2014 World Cup: Ghana's provisional squad leaked ?

Ghana's

Ghana’s

Renowned Takoradi-based sports journalist George Kuntu Blankson has released a list of 30 players from which Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah will pick his final World Cup squad.

The Spice 91.9FM sports presenter’s select band of players includes 2013 FIFA U20 World Cup top scorer Ebenezer Assifuah, who now plays for Swiss side FC Sion.

In-form Egypt-based striker John Antwi of Ismaily also made the squad.

John Mensah, who recently made a return to action in the Slovakian league for FC Nitra, has been tabled for consideration.

Kuntu Blankson also included home-based defenders Abeiku Ainooson, Nuru Sulley and Kwabena Edusei.

Hasaacas goalkeeper George Owu and Stephen Adams have been selected.

The veteran journalist claims he has done a lot of monitoring and with his experience; coach Appiah will not look beyond these players.

Below is the list of the 28 provided by George Kuntu Blankson.

Goalkeepers: Adam Kwarasey, Fatau Dauda, George Owu and Stephen Adams

Defenders: Samuel Inkoom, Daniel Opare, Jerry Akaminko, John Boye, Jonathan Mensah, John Mensah, Rashid Sumaila, Nuru Sulley, Abeiku Ainooson, Kwabena Adusei and Harrison Afful.

Midfielders: Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, Kwadwo Asamoah, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Andre Dede Ayew, Mubarak Wakaso, Mohamed Rabiu and Christian Atsu.

Strikers: Asamoah Gyan, Abdul Majeed Waris, Jordan Ayew, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, Ebenezer Assifuah and John Antwi

    If is true, there is nothing new about it! Again this is provisional list and ll still be trim down to 25!! Nothing new!!

    • aberico says:

      This is just like listing numbers from 1 to 90 and telling us that out of the 90 numbers will come the lotto numbers for the winner and so we should all go and stake. If such a person tells us to select any number from 1-90 and stake it, he has done nothing. He just want a public attention and a name for himself.

    • GHFUO, be serious & change ur MENtality says:

      DROP OWU AND CALL DAN ADJEI.
      DROP NKUM, SUMAILA, AINOOSON N SULLEY. WHERE IS AWAL, GYIMA, LEE AND DAVE ADDY?
      AFRIYIE ACQUAH, NANA ASARE, ABEYIE? PLS, DROP JORDAN AYEW

  2. Adams Babaeuro says:

    Is a good tearm but if i may ask how many coaches are we taking to world cup

  3. Ali Issaka says:

    Great squad, but Boakye Yiadom, Solomon Asante should be included

  4. keith from germany says:

    i dont realy believe this provisional list.
    let us wait and see.

  5. Benny says:

    What is the fuss all about.We know which players will make the cut.Dauda should not be included in the squad.
    Vorsah is on the mend and should considerd.John Mensah will be a liability.

  6. keith from germany says:

    selfmade thats the same george owu who was at the afcon 2006 in egypt as well as being a reserve keeper at the Worldcup in Germany.
    he has won 9 caps for Ghana.

  7. kuukuphilly says:

    Nice one there. Hope the coach is taking notes.

  8. Kells says:

    This journalist must be on crack with this so called provisional squad.

  9. spellBOUND says:

    this is soooooo fake. lol.

  10. Dis list is complete Rubbish!!!, where is baloteli,danny welbeck, jerome boateng, gerrard asamoah??? Afterall they all of ghanian origin nd they doing well in their club sides

  11. tbdarko says:

    Swagger d ginger….hahaha…chale u fool waa…lol good one

  12. nas says:

    I can’t believe Ghanaians are taking this serious

  13. nas says:

    I believe baba abdul rahman should make the squad

  14. selfmade says:

    @ Keith…. I know mate but we don’t even have a problem with our goalkeeping department!! I can see AKL living up to a huge expectations in Brazil!! Adam kwarasey( AKL) has matured mentally,understands the Africa way of thinking and he seems to be a serious guy now than he started!! Kwarasey is now going to be a huge standout in Brazil!! As for George owu though he is a veteran, he is still not a great goalkeeper and this guy has been highly inconsistent!! I DONT BELIEVE OWU IS ON THE LIST….

  15. GH4Lyf says:

    David Accam should be at the world cup!

  16. keith from germany says:

    SELFMADE THIS LIST IS VERY FAKE.I DONT BELEIVE IT:

  17. Adebayo says:

    If this journalist really followed world soccer, he would know that Jeff Schlupp should make the Ghana squad!

  18. Layrouns Andoh says:

    i see nothing wrote exploring the truth.

  19. richmond says:

    vorsah need to go to the world cup :(

  20. richmond says:

    Goalkeepers: Adam Kwarasey, Fatau Dauda, Stephen Adams

    Defenders: Daniel Opare, Jerry Akaminko, John Boye, Jonathan Mensah, John Mensah, Rashid Sumaila, Abeiku Ainooson, Vorsah, Mubarak Wakaso
    Midfielders: Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, Kwadwo Asamoah, Emmanuel Agyemang Badu, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Andre Dede Ayew, Mohamed Rabiu, Jordan Ayew and Christian Atsu.

    Strikers: Asamoah Gyan, Abdul Majeed Waris, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, Ebenezer Assifuah and John Antwi

  21. Kingsetho says:

    The squad is very fantastic but dont forget two times world experience goalkeeper Richard Kingsley is doing well at his in Turkey. So i dout George Owu’s inclusion to the squad,but all thesame u’ve done well.

  22. Kobby says:

    here dey come again fake n stomach journalist. Afriyie Acquah is in form Dan all de midfielders der. fake people

  23. kyz fm guy says:

    illiterate guy. this is not your unicon matter oo. think of your work and leave AA alone, mtcheew!!

  24. sulemana firdaus says:

    it’s a fake selection for ghana.

  25. lukjay says:

    Actually u hv all said u mind but remember is only the caoch who can lable out players..so thr4 lets wait and see wht happens next
    ** great squared frm Mr.Kuntu **

  26. Dan K says:

    I would like to see Vorsah and Annan in this squad before trimming.

  27. Kingsetho says:

    Adam kwarasay should be black the stars number one goalkeeper at the world cup in Brazil.becuz he very active compare to the others ,he tops all………. Fatau is not active, olele is too old, stephen Adams is not all that good for the world stage.

  28. Edem - Toronto says:

    I must be missing something or the rest of my compatriots are.
    Albert Adomah was on the provisional 26 man AFCON team, was called up again for Montenegro game as a winger. Yet, people continue to ignore his call-up for the WC. I think he will be included in the midfield call-ups, not sure if he will make the 23 man roster though with our depth at mid.
    I think people need to lay to rest the idea that Fatau Dauda should not make the WC. I believe he will be on the provisional squad and either he is too rusty and gets beat out by Adjei and/or Adams or he retains his spot as our #1 or #2.
    All this non-sense/haters needs to stop because we might need Dauda to set in for us during the tournament. You know these European players love to dive in the penalty box like they got shot with an AK-47 and our #2 (whoever it is) might be called upon.

    • spellBOUND says:

      chale u don’t make sense. what does panelties have to do with our #2????
      ur insinuating that mr larsen might get a red. have you forgotten that players commit more panelties than keepers??? u don’t make sense mate…

      • Edem - Toronto says:

        Here is what i am saying – We might need our #2 goalie to step in. It can be in the form of a red card in a game or injuries during training. I didn’t think i need to spell it out for you spellbound. You are always pushing the Dauda issue every article that i am beginning to think you can’t see the forest from the trees. You are starting to sound like a fucking broken record. The Ghanaian populace wants to see success for the black stars in any form we aren’t all stuck on who minds our net.

  29. benito says:

    It would be disastrous to leave out vorsah who plays in the USA and knows how to deal with the strikers and others most of whom play in MLS

    • spellBOUND says:

      vorsah plays in the USA???????? i think thats news to everyone… LOL

      • GHFUO, be serious & change ur MENtality says:

        WE MUST BELIEVE IN OUR LOCAL PLAYERS. MOST OF THESE PLAYERS EVEN COMING FROM EASTERN EUROPE, S AERICA ARE LOCAL BASED PLAYERS, GOALIES. ADAMS IS PROLLY THE BEST PENALTY GOALIE WE HVE. OWU MUST BE DROPPED IN FAVOR OF DAN ADJEI. DAUDA IS RUSTY N MUST NOT EVEN BE CONSIDERED. GOALIES BY NATURE ARE ALWAYS INACTIVE EVEN IN A GAME. A BENCH WARMING GOALIE IS EVEN MORE OF A LIABILITY.

  30. ARHIN ISAAC says:

    where is Vorsah and Mathew Amoah now

  31. keith from germany says:

    Benito point of correction vorsah dont play in the MLS but rather in austria with red bull salzburg.
    The owner of the energy drink company peter maztisch owns three red bull teams.the teams are–Red bull new york who plays in the MLS as u said,red bull salzburg who on the weekend won the Austria Bundesliga and red bull leipzig who are on the verge of qualifying from the german third tier to the german second bundesliga.
    I hope u take my point of correction in good faith

  32. 21guns says:

    World cup without vorsah and john mensah is disaster for the back Oo

  33. selfmade says:

    Even though this squad is not the real one, the defence has some serious names that l ll like appiah to add to his list!! Ainooson had an awesome tournament in south Africa and though the level wouldn’t be the same in the WC, I think this dude should be given a chance at our next friendly matches to see his inputs!! Secondly, edusei is another fine defender who can be tested to see how how fare against the big boys!! He had an added advantage of been a dreaded penalty taker and he can at least solve our perennial penalty problems when the need calls for it!!

  34. yemo18 says:

    we can all make our own 30 man squad if thats the case. thats George Kuntu Blanksons opinion which doesnt reflect that of Akwasi Appiah’s opinion or the F.A. ghanasoccernet should just give us a break

  35. fenandohussien says:

    Fake kotoko players included

  36. sticky straw says:

    Toy black coaches how can u ignore afriyie acquah whom apart from Kelvin prince boateng the most regular in the European league and chose Agyemang badu who is just a bench warmer in a very low class team like udinese even Anthony annan who is in big club with the same situation as badu what’s a favouritism is going on? Black coaches are FAilures black coaches has no sense black coaches like bribery black coache like black magic (juju)black coaches are fools

  37. Pinkus says:

    Acam must be in the list and not the much favoured names like Jordan and Boakye Yiadom who got more of the favours to prove themselves and yet did nothing.

  38. Kofi gyimah says:

    Yooo Kuntu we hear u wai but can u pls tell us wen God is coming since u know everything.

  39. Eeeeeiiiii,Ghanaians and Kuntu Blankson should not forget that Albert Adoma is Kwesi Appiah’s darling boy. Bet me,Kwesi Appiah will not go to the WC without him. We should not also forget Frank Acheapong if we need a winger. But for Owu,out. I don’t believe this squad though,about 95%of this plyers will make the cut to the WC. God bless our homeland.

  40. Trash Talker says:

    All of y’all are a bunch of fools for even commenting on this article

  41. Ekow says:

    where is John Painstil?

  42. kofi says:

    We need to see Baba Rahman in the squad

  43. GHFUO, be serious & change ur MENtality says:

    AA HIMSELF MUST BECOME THE COACH/PLAYER N
    WEAR A NUMBER 3 JERSEY FOR THE LEFTBACK SPOT

  44. kojo aquah says:

    Why would kumtu make such a hearless squard living experience players like, qency,amoah,inkom,ediya,awal mohamed,pantile, and othere experince players? Kwesi appiah must sit down and think.
