South Africa based players are out of Ghana’s squad

Ghana have dropped all four of their South African-based based players for their friendly against Montenegro next week with the World Cup looming.

The worst fears of Pirates goalkeeper Fatau Dauda was realised when he was left out of the squad but coach Kwesi Appiah has told him that he needs to monitor other players.

There is also no place for Rashid Sumaila of Mamelodi Sundowns, Edward Gyimah of SuperSport United and Mohamed Awal of Maritzburg United.

Dauda had been warned his inability to take over as No 1 at the Buccaneers could cost him his place in the Black Stars squad as they prepare to go to Brazil later this year.

All of them were in the last Black Stars squad when they played in Egypt in November to clinch their World Cup place.

It leaves the players fearing for the chance of a World Cup trip for the PSL players and the representation of the South African league in Brazil because Nigeria have also dropped James Okwuosa of Chippa United for their friendly against Mexico in Atlanta.

    Okay this is strange. Remember Agyei was also in Egypt or wait is he not a Ghanaian? Does he no longer play in South Africa? Hmm strange it is always Dauda we’re getting tired of reading his name over and over again on this site.
    Or pure hatred towards Agyei?

  2. Glenn says:

    Why didn’t you ppl mention Agyei? Is he no more a Ghanaian, based in South Africa or no more qualified for Ghana black stars?

  3. anokwale says:

    It appears that the South African league may not be thay strong. There is good money but the quality is questionable.

  4. roberto says:

    Was Edwin Gyimah part of the team that played in Egypt ,be factual

  5. keith from germany says:

    Daniel agyei is nursing an injury n rashid sumaila just returned from an injury so all of them are not by 100% fitness.
    The south african league aint that good as many supposed.
    Eventhough u cant compare it to ghana’s premier league,i think the league is overhyped becuz of it marketing n sponsoring deals.
    Guys ghana aint going to the afcon,that is the WC for u n u need ur top guns.
