Kwesi Appiah is firm on the ground

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah will leave no stone unturned over the next four months as he tries to get the best idea of whom he should take to the World Cup.

The clock is ticking for Ghana’s players to prove to Appiah that they deserve to be in his 23-man World Cup squad when it is named at the end of May.

The next few months will be the most important period of Appiah’s professional life too.

The 53-year-old has had just over five-years career in management but taking his own country to the World up is his biggest mission by far.

The ex-Kotoko great therefore wants to cover the length and breadth of the country as well as monitor his foreign-based players to pick the best players available to him.

Even though he has stated he has close to 20 ‘untouchables’ in mind, he is leaving no stone unturned to ensure the best players represents the Africans at the global showpiece.

“Myself and the team are looking at the performance of our boys, so I have no worries about not knowing enough about the players,” he said

“We follow them week in-week out. I have a scouting team who monitors their performances and so we’re firmly on the ground. ”

Appiah will travel to the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday night to meet up with his captain Asamoah Gyan to discuss their plans for the World Cup, as revealed exclusively by GHANAsoccernet.com.

    I have always tipped these below crop of players to make the 23 man squad:
    Goalkeepers: Adam Kwaresey, Fatau Dauda, Francis Adjei

    Defenders: Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah, John Boye, Daniel Opare, Isaac Vorsah, Jerry Akaminko, Rashid Sumaila,
    Midfielders: Michael Essien, Albert Adomah, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Kwadwo Asamoah , Sulley Muntari ,Afriyie Aquah, Andre Ayew, Christian Atsu, Rabiu Mohammed, Wakaso Mubarak

    Strikers: Majeed Waris, Asamoah Gyan, Kevin-Prince Boateng
    These players throughout our qualifiers both in the world cup and Africa cup as well as the Africa cup tournament in 2013 have acquired the class of possibly being selected into the BS team, no doubt about that but what they need is to maintain their form in order to be part of the 23-man squad else they can be ejected by these next crop of players though the road is long for these players and need to work extra harder because in football anything is possible. These players could possibly break into the above class of players:
    Goalkeepers: Stephen Adams, Razak Braihimah, Richard Kingston

    Defenders: Masahudu Alhassan, Nana Akwasi Asare, Lee Addy, Seth Konadu, Abeiku Ainooson, Kwabena Adusei, Nuru Sulley, Godfred Saka, Joshua Tijani, David Addy, Harrison Afful, Richard Kissi Boateng, Samuel Nkoom
    Midfielders: Alfred Duncan, Maxwell Acosty, Isaac Cofie, Enock Adu Kofi, Kwame Quansah Isaac Sackey, Bismark Adjei-Boateng, Ishmael Yartey, Seidu Salifu, Emmanuel Frimpong, Rahman Chibsah, Frank Acheampong, Bennard Kumordzi, Edwin Gyimah, Solomon Asante

    Strikers: Jeffrey Schulpp; Oduro; Shadrach Eghan, Ebenezer Assifuah, Samuel Afum, John Antwi, Jordan Ayew, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, Dominic Adiyiyah
