Black Stars assistant coach George Boateng believes that the new additions to the group will give Ghana the opportunity to compete in the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

In July this year, the Ghana Football Association confirmed that Inaki Williams, Mohammed Salisu, Tariq Lamptey, Patrick Pfeiffer, Stephan Ambrosius, and Ransford-Yeboah Königsdörffer had been now obtainable for national group selection.

Out of the six, 5 had been referred to as up for the friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua with Pfeiffer lacking out.

Boateng, who lately resigned as Aston U23 coach, is adamant that these additions will solely strengthen the group.

“I think it is important to stress out that the players that we have brought on board is to strengthen the team — to make it better — to give Ghana the opportunity to compete at the WC stage — and that’s the most important thing,” he told Joy Sports in an exclusive interview.

The news of all the twin nationals selecting Ghana after the country secured qualification to the World Cup led to conversations about these players taking benefit of the group. However, the assistant coach of the national group thinks that in the finish, all their selections should profit Ghana.

“If look at it, I would like to give a good example. At the moment we are all serving the country and Ghana is number 1. Nobody within the team as a group of players is more important than Ghana, nobody in the technical staff is more important than Ghana, including me. If I don’t deliver what my requirements are for the job, I shouldn’t be there.
