Don’t Abandon Players Who Qualified Ghana To The World Cup – Adam Kwarasey
Ghanaian Norway-born former Black Stars goalkeeper Adam Larsen Kwarasey has warned Ghana Football Association(GFA) and the national team handlers not to forget players who qualified Ghana for the World Cup in Qatar.
In the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon where the Stars exited the group stage after failing to win a game, many football pieces of evidence in Ghana were hopefully about Ghana’s chances of making it to the globe.
The Black Stars led by Otto Addo drew 0-0 with the Super Eagles of Nigeria in Kumasi and recorded a 1-1 draw in Abuja with the help of Thomas Partey scoring the decisive away goal that sealed Ghana’s qualification to Qatar.
Mr. Kwarasey who announced his decision to play for Ghana in November 2007 wants the players who played a role in the qualifiers to be involved in the World Cup.
“Of course, everybody is welcome, I hope everybody is welcome. If you’re a Ghanaian, you’re a Ghanaian. You’re welcome hopefully but you shouldn’t forget those who qualified for the tournament as well and just bring foreign-born players,” he said.
“The foreign-born players need to be there for the right reasons and not only like ‘I want to come. It needs to be the right balance and those guys that qualified the team to the tournament if they are ready and in form, of course, you should consider them,” he added.
Ghana will face Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea in the group stage of the World Cup in Qatar between 15 -24 July.
