Amidaus Professionals midfielder Yahaya Mohammed says he’s astonished at his omission from the 24-man squad for this month’s 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan.
The 24-year-old was surprisingly was left out of the squad by coach Kwesi Appiah despite recovering from a knee injury which ruled him out of the 2013 African Cup of Nations.
The on-loan Asante Kotoko enforcer says he’s surprised at his exclusion insisting he’s fully fit to have played a part in the crunch tie at the Baba Yara stadium.
“I will say I am surprised because I was expecting to make the squad for the Sudan match but all the same I wish them well for the game,” Mohammed told Storm FM.
“I hear they claim I have an injury but that is never true because I was given three weeks to recover from my injury I sustained before the Nations Cup but that three weeks is long overdue and I have even played two games and scored once.
“I chose not to play the FA Cup match because I didn’t want to invite any injury before this Sudan match so I am fully fit and was expecting a call-up.”
The former OGC Nice midfielder is the leading goal scorer in the Ghana Premier League with 11 goals.
