Six Kotoko players pull out of local Black Stars
Due to Kumasi Asante Kotoko’s upcoming CAF Confederations Cup match later this month, all Kotoko players invited to join the Black Stars B camp next week have been exempted from Black Stars B duties to enable them to continue with their club’s preparations for the CAF Confederations Cup.
Konadu had initially invited six Kotoko players namely Felix Annan, Agyemang Badu, Abass Mohammed, Richard Senanu, Ganiu Ismail, Emmanuel Gyamfi.
As a result, Black Stars B head coach, Maxwell Konadu, has called up new players in place of the Kotoko players. The coach has also pruned down the initial squad from 25 players to 20.
The invited Black Stars B players are to prepare for an impending international soccer friendly between Ghana and Namibia on November 24, 2018.
The players are expected to report for camping in Prampram on Monday November 19, at 12 midday. The Ghana versus Namibia game will be played at the Sam Nujoma Stadium, Windhoek in honour of Namibia’s President, Hage Gottfried Geingob.
Below is the revised squad:
Goalkeepers: Robert Dabuo (Ashantigold), Ofori Antwi (Medeama fc)
Defenders: Fatau Mohammed (Hearts of Oak) Kwadwo Amoako(Eleven Wonders) Ibrahim Moro(Karela fc) Habib Mohammed(Ashantigold .) Ibrahim Yaro(Medeama fc) Benjamin Agyare (Hearts of Oak) Issah Yakubu (Dreams FC)
