Ghana emerged as one of the powerful teams in Africa a few years ago due to the presence of players like Michael Essien.
However, due to various reasons most of the star players like Essien and Kevin Prince Boetang have not been featuring at the international level in the last few years. This has subsequently led to the reduction in quality at the national level, while results have also not been good as well. In this situation, national team manager Kwesi Appiah has said that he will be looking to bring back several stars back into the national team.
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has said that he is extremely happy following the 4-0 win over Sudan in the recent World Cup qualifying match. Ghana came into the encounter three points behind the leaders Zambia in the table.
However, as a result of this victory coupled with the draw for Zambia, they have managed to close the gap to just one point. After the match, Appiah said that he was extremely happy with the way his team were tactically organised. Former Sunderland striker Gyan opened the scoring after just 90 min on the clock.
The Ghana football Association have confirmed that they will be retaining the services of the manager Kwesi Appiah despite the failure to land the 2013 African cup of nations.
The Ghana manager Kwesi Appiah has said that he is extremely happy with the preparation of a team so far, while he thinks that they have enough fitness in order to do well at the 2013 African cup of nations. Ghana will be coming into the tournament as one of the underdogs due to their recent failings at the tournament.
Ghana currently in Abu Dhabi for the preparations and they recently completed the fifth training session. Appiah has confirmed that all the 24 members of the squad took part in the fitness preparations, which also included tactical work as well.
The former Ghana goalkeeper Abubakari Damba has said that the Ghana National team manager Kwasi Appiah should be focusing on the players at hand rather than continue searching for new players for the national team.
The Ghana national team manager Kwesi Appiah has said that he does not feel that the Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien is finished as a player for the national team. These comments, after the Chelsea midfielder, who is currently on loan at the Spanish club Real Madrid, has decided to pull out of the upcoming friendly match.
The Ghana national team manager Kwasi Appiah has said that he said it did not start the match against Flames of Malawi in the best manner, and it explains the poor performance in the 2-0 win.
Ghana were playing against Flames of Malawi on Saturday at the Accra Sports Stadium. Ghana were expected to steamroll their opponents due to the significant quality within the team. However, they struggled throughout the match and could only manage a 2-0 win over their opponents. The Ghana manager Kwasi Appiah has said it is largely due to the poor start made by his team in the first half.
The Ghana football Association has decided to come to an agreement with the Chinese football Association over the development of football at various stages. Football in Ghana has been in the ascendancy for a number of years now, but the football Association of the African country has recognised the need for help from a much bigger nation like China.
Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan is all set to announce his return to international football with the Ghana national team. The 27-year-old has been missing for the national team in the last couple of matches after taking voluntary retirement from the international level.
The Sunderland striker is currently playing for the Middle East club Al Ain on a loan deal till the end of the season. However, it is thought that he would be making his move permanent to the Middle East club after it was revealed that Al Ain are in talks with Sunderland on a transfer fee.
New Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has said that he is extremely positive that Sunderland striker Asamoah Gyan will return to playing international football in the near future.
