Ghana coach Appiah monitoring World Cup hopefuls
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has said he is closely monitoring his squad options ahead of the 2014 World Cup.
Appiah will name a 23-man squad by the end of May as he takes his Ghana side to Brazil to face USA, Germany and Portugal.
“We follow the games every week. I have a scouting team which is monitoring the performance of our players,” Appiah said
“Myself and the team are looking at the performance of our boys, so I have no worries about not knowing enough about the players.
“We have to try and make sure we liaise with the clubs, get around to the clubs and get a chance to meet with the coaches, meet with the players, just get an update and a chance to refresh the players’ memories about what we look like and how we sound.”
The Ghanaian trainer 53, has admitted to his excitement ahead of the showpiece in Brazil, in particular after his team were handed a tough group stage draw.
“I am very excited,” he said. “It is the biggest tournament, really.
“It is every four years, an incredible world event and this year with it being in Brazil, with all that Brazil represents in football terms, it adds spice to the occasion, there is no question about that.”
Kwesi Appiah has revealed he has up to 20 ‘untouchables’ in his squad ahead of the tournament.
The Black Stars will play Costa Rica, Honduras and Holland in pre-world cup friendlies before the global showpiece in the South American country.
