    To me this would be the perfect squad if all players are fit
    GK – Dauda, Kwarasey, Adams/ Daniel Agyei
    Full backs – Opare, Afful, Jonathan Mensah (can also play centre back)
    Centrebacks – Vorsah, Boye, Akaminko, Sumaila
    Midfielders – Essien, Badu, Wakaso, Muntari, Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah
    Wingers – Acheampong, Atsu, Jordan
    Strikers – Kevin Prince Boateng, Gyan, Majeed Waris.
    The 23rd spot could go to anyone really. Any of these players could be selected for that last spot: Inkoom, Baba Rahman, David Addy, Afriyie Acquah, Rabiu Mohammed, Albert Adomah, Boakye Yiadom, Assifuah, Yartey. For some reason I have this feeling that Appiah would drop Jordan, Acheampong, and Sumaila or Vorsah for Adomah, Inkoom and probably take Rabiu for the last spot.
    But for me untouchables are Kwarasey, Jonathan Mensah, Boye, Essien, Badu, Muntari, Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah, Atsu, KPB, Gyan, and Waris.

      Crazy fool. you mentioned everybody but ghana’s best player, Kwadwo Asamoah. Moreover, your selections are way off the mark. Try this;

      Kwarassey
      Dauda
      Agyei

      Inkoom
      Opare
      Afful
      Boye
      Akaminko
      Jonathan
      Sumaila
      Gyima

      Essien
      Badu
      Frimpong
      Andre
      Atsu
      Kwadwo
      Wakaso
      Muntari
      Acheampong

      Gyan
      Wariss
      Prince

      • askantwi says:

        We need mostly the young talented players more than the old experience players. Therefore, with Essien, Muntari and Gyan in the squad who cannot do most of the runnings, the young ones like Frimpong, Acheampong and Wariss are very essential to our course. Emmanuel Frimpong will supplement Essien very well with energy and robost and skill in midfield. Out of the left flank, Acheampong will stand in perfectly when Muntari gets tired. Acheampong is the fastest player in the squad. He is also very talented and precision deliveries and scoring. We all see how Wariss helps out Asamoah Gyan. A word to the wise……

      • E.P says:

        You are on point but why the insults.Can’t you speak without insulting someone?I believe we can not all have the same thought and the other commentor has the same right as you to express himself.

  4. amankwa-R says:

    kwadwo asamoah sshould be there too. take jordan or mubarak out and replace kwadman.

  5. kkattah says:

    GK- Kwarasey, Adams, Agyei
    Def- Opare, Afful, Jonathan Mensah,Vorsah, Boye, Akaminko, Dennis Appiah
    Midfielders – Essien, Badu, Wakaso, Muntari, Ayew, Kwadwo Asamoah,Atsu,KPB
    Strikers-Gyan, Majeed Waris.Boakye Yiadom

  6. kaakyire amponsah says:

    squad should be no gyan it should be wakaso and solomon asante can provide you with speed and let kevin prince boateng take the penalty if we go to extra time penalty and make sure all the players are not injured or not out of form

  7. Bobo says:

    To me this would be the perfect squad if all players are fit
    GK – Kwarasey, Adams, Dauda,
    Full backs – Opare, Afful, kwadman
    Centrebacks – Edusei, Boye, Jonathan Mensah, Sumaila, Akaminko

    Midfielders – Essien, Badu, Wakaso, Muntari, Ayew,
    Afiyie Acquah
    Wingers –Adomah, Atsu, Jordan
    Strikers – Kevin Prince Boateng, Gyan, Majeed Waris.

    kwadman had to be the 1st choice for LB

  8. lion-fire says:

    I will find a way to stick Shadrach Eghan in this squad. He is young but very talented and will have the potential of being a super sub. And he is not very known by opposition teams.

    you need the players to take 10 penalties in traing session because we don’t know how to take penalties

    • Ekow says:

      Nana, I can’t believe you will have Wakaso,Waris,Badu,Atsu,Mensah and Afful sitting on the bench.These are part of the core black stars.They will crucify us if we go in depending on the old and unhealthy PkB and Essien.

  14. Nana says:

    Kwarasey,Dauda, Adams

    Def: Boye ,Akaminko, Jonathan M,Vorsah,opare ,nkoom , David Ardy,Aful

    Mid: Muntari,Essien ,kwadwo, A Ayew ,Badu,Rabiu M, Atsu,Wakaso

    Strikers: Gyan ,Waris,Boakye Y, Prince B

    • CEREBRAL says:

      @Nana, I like your selection very much. These other players could be added in case the listed players above are not available. Assifuah won the golden boot at the U20…..he is a work horse, a machine….all he needs is a tune up and he will fit in perfectly in attack. Adomah has pace but he needs to continue scoring goals like he has been doing lately to increase his chances.

  15. Kwame adu-Gyamfi says:

    Goalkeepers: Adam Kwarasey, Richard Kingson,Razak Braimah. Defenders: John Boye, Isaac Vorsah, Jonathan Mensah, Jerry Akaminko, Samuel Inkoom, David Addy, Nana Asare, Daniel Opare. Midfielders: Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, Kevin Prince Boateng, Kwadwo Asamoah, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Mubarak Wakaso, Christian Atsu, Andre Ayew. Forwards: Asamoah Gyan, Abdul Majeed Waris, Richmond Boakye, Jordan Ayew

  16. kuukuphilly says:

    don’t wanna hurt any feelings so will let the coach decide then I will make my views known..

  17. anokwale says:

    When you say untouchable you mean who would start in a do or die game against a tough opponent. Here it is:
    Goalie: Kwarsey
    LB: Kasa!!
    RB: J Mensah
    CB: Vorsah
    CB: Boye
    DM: Agyeman Badu
    AM: K. Boateng
    LW: Muntari
    RW: Dede
    FW: Warris
    FW: Gyan

    I have put Kasa at left back and J Mensah at right back because this is the best way for us to have the best players on the field.

  18. Jojo says:

    We can keep the same squad against Egypt and we will beat anyone as long as we are tactically sound.

  19. sam says:

    Chibsah is better than rabui mohammed.

  20. sejay says:

    Here is my view for coachitos 20 man.
    Kwarasy, Dauda, D. Adjei/ Kingson lol
    Opare,Jonathan mensah, Aful, vorsah, j. Boy, inkoim, Akaminko, sumaila,

    Essien, muntary, Rabiu,Ayew,A badu,k.Asamoah,Atsu, Adoma, wakasu.

    Gyan, waris, Kevin

  21. Les says:

    The weakest part of our team currently is the central defence. Kwesi Appiah should experiment during the training and trial matches with the system juventus plays where there are three central defenders and two wing backs. We have natural wing backs in Harrison Afful and Kwadwo Asamoah. They will play as defenders and midfirlders at the same time depending on whether we are on the offensive or defensive.With this we play 3-5-2 when we are on the offensive and 5-3-2 when on the defensive. Egypt won three back to back afcon titles with this formation under Hassan Shehatta.

  22. M.A - K umasi says:

    GHANAIAN’S WITH SHORT MEMORIES.ANYWAY THAT’S YOUR VIEW.GHANA NEEDS JOHN PANTSIL AT THE WORLD.WE LOST HIM IN OUR TEAM AND WE SUFFERED AGAINST BURKINA AT THE LAST NATION’S CUP.

  23. Edem - Toronto says:

    Below is my opinion on perceived untouchables and those that risk not making this talented squad. My preference is for selection of experienced players, but will take explosive players (fast change of pace speed)when selecting players on the bubble.

    GK – 3
    Untouchables – Dauda, Kwarasey,
    On the bubble – Kingson, Adams, Agyei best player at camp will become the 3rd GK for tourney. My preference is Agyei because of his 2010 experience and his relative youth compared to Kingson.

    DEF – 8
    Untouchables – Inkoom, Vorsah, J Mensah, Opare, Afful, Boye
    On the bubble – J. Paintsil, Lee Addy, Akimanko, Sumaila, D. Addy.
    My preference is Lee Addy and J. Paintsil who have both combined for about 10 world cup match experience. Since this is the area we are concerned about. If Paintsil comes to camp not able to keep up with younger faster wing players, I would take Akimanko as the 8th defender and utilize Asamoah when LB and RB players accumulate yellow cards at tourney.

    MID – 8
    Untouchables – K. Asamoah, Muntari, Ayew, Wakaso, Atsu, Badu.
    On the bubble – Essien, D. Boateng, A. Annan, Rabiu M, Achaempong, Frimpong, Adomah.
    We are loaded with talent in the middle of the pitch so hard to make a mistake here. I would prefer to see Essien due to skill level and experience should he be in game shape and Achaempong. I knew little about Achaempong till reading previous post and seeing highlights but dude has game changer speed. I think Frimpong and Ribiu may miss out due to our abundance of holding mids.

    FWD – 4
    Untouchables – Gyan, KPB, Warris,
    On the bubble – J. Ayew, Boakye, D. Adiyah.
    I think Jordan Ayew wins out over the other 3 players in camp in my opinion.

    Regardless what the final 23 i am certain this team is more talented than 2010 version. Hopefully they can work hard, play good team defense and exceed the quarterfinals this time around.

  24. Max Arkaah (Kow great nefue) says:

    4-2-3-1 Adam; Opare, Vorsah, Mensah, Wakaso; Essien, Asamoah; Ayew, KPB, Atsu/Wakaso; Gyan (C)
