Per coach Otto Addo’s remark, the Black Stars squad for the World Cup has been settled with the teaching staff having a good concept of the players who will be making the 26-man squad for the journey to Qatar.
As he said, at least 70% of the players who made the squad for the September friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua might effectively be on their means to Qatar.
With some areas nonetheless up for grabs, we glance at some players who weren’t a part of the squad for the friendlies however might make the ultimate 26-man squad for the World Cup.
If Otto Addo’s feedback are something to go by, then Samed Seidu might make the squad if the variations with the teaching staff are resolved.
He was neglected not based mostly on kind however as a result of Otto Addo was not satisfied about his dedication to the staff.
The Lens midfielder is seen as the proper accomplice and various to Thomas Partey whose injuries appear not to be going away.
Like Seidu, Schlupp can also be one other player who regardless of having fun with game club can’t appear to discover his means into the Black Stars.
His difficulty, as per reviews is due to his determination to boycott or prematurely retire from the national staff due to some unresolved issues.
With coach George Boateng lately visiting him, there may be hope that he might reverse his determination and play for Ghana at the World Cup.
Another who may be paying for his earlier sins. Joseph Paintsil didn’t make the squad as a result of he failed to honor earlier call-ups in June when the staff engaged in AFCON qualifiers and the 2022 Kirin Cup.
Despite his spectacular kind within the 2022/2023 league, Paintsil was not referred to as as Otto Addo believes he has other options.
Though the wings appear to be filled with abilities, Paintsil might get a spot if he continues to rack up the numbers, it will be exhausting for Otto Addo to overlook him.
Paintsil has been concerned in six goals within the ongoing season.
The goalkeeping position appeared to have been settled with Ofori, Wollacott, and Manaf Nurudeen cementing their place however the steady clamor for an area illustration within the staff might swing issues in Danlad’s favor.
He is without doubt one of the finest goalies within the native league and if he continues to impress Asante Kotoko, he may very well be on his means to Qatar.
The Spezia deputy skipper has surprisingly been neglected of the Black Stars call-up in current occasions regardless of constant football at the club stage.
In the Italian Serie A, he has performed 8 occasions this season, polling only one assist however what stands out about him is his work fee and talent to affect play.
He might break into the Ghana staff if he provides numbers to his unbelievable work fee and self-discipline.
