Black Stars’ experienced trio

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah will be counting on his experienced players to send the team far at the 2014 World Cup finals Brazil.

As many as nine players- Jonathan Mensah, Isaac Vorsah, Michael Essien, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Andre Ayew, Samuel Inkoom, Kwadwo Asamoah, Sulley Muntari, Asamoah Gyan-of current Black Stars team have World Cup experience.

Appiah says the availability of tried and tested players will be crucial in their quest to advance from a tough Group comprising USA, Germany and Portugal.

“The good thing about having experienced players is that at this high level, you need players of high, high confidence to hold on to the ball,” Appiah told FIFA.com in an interview.

“And at the same time you need young players who can also do the runs when needed, and fight and do some dirty work, and you have some experienced ones to finish it up.”

Ghana have some promising prospects who have been part of the team the last two years.

Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, Daniel Opare, Christian Atsu, Jordan Ayew, Abdul Majeed Waris, Rashid Sumaila, Jerry Akaminko have showed they have the credentials of playing at the highest level.
