Ghana to name final 2012 AFCON squad in few hours
Ghana will not delay submitting its final squad for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.
All qualified teams for the tournament in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea are expected to submit their final 23-man squads latest by 23:59 GMT Wednesday.
And with influential Asamoah Gyan still out injured, some suggestions have been made to defer submitting the final squad to afford the 26-year-old more time to make a full recovery.
However Ghana FA President Kwasi Nyantakyi insists this option is not under consideration and that the squad will be submitted by close of day.
“We will submit the final list as expected of us by Caf,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.
“Caf allows changes to be made on submitted squads on medical grounds so that effectively gives us more time to observe any injuries especially with Asamoah Gyan.”
Failure to comply with this directive of squad submission will attract a fine of $3000.
