Defender Awal Mohammed refused visa for Ghana friendly against Cape Verde

Posted On Wednesday, 14th November 2012

Awal Mohammed was denied an entry visa to Portugal for Ghana's friendly against Cape Verde

Defender Awal Mohammed was unable to join Ghana’s squad for the friendly international against Cape Verde on Wednesday.

The Maritzburg FC player could not secure a visa to join the Black Stars in Lisbon for the pre-Africa Cup of Nations warm-up match.

Mohammed was handed his debut Ghana call-up after impressive displays in the South African Absa Premiership.

He has a remote chance of making Ghana’s squad for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

“I feel a bit disappointed but I have taken it in good faith,” the former Kotoko centre-back told MTNFootball.com

“I have spoken to the coach and he has assured me that if I continue playing good, I can get another opportunity.”

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah wants to assess the fringe players before naming his final 23-man squad for the 19 January- 10 February tournament.

    Can someone please clarify: What was the reason for the visa denial??

    he already knows he stands no chance of making it to the final squad

    Ghana displayed a very tactical brand of soccer and hoping the building process is over.Zambia are also in fine form beating South Africa 1-o.Akwesi needs to make-up his mind so the fringe players will know where they stand. Come 2013,all matches involving the Black Stars need to start at a high tempo with good possessive ability.
