Ibrahim Tanko, deputy Coach of the Black Stars has revealed that some players of Asante Kotoko will be invited into the Black Stars ahead of Ghana’s AFCON qualifier against Kenya to be played in March.
The Porcupine Warriors are Ghana’s only representative in Africa club competition this year as they partake in the group stages of the CAF Confederation Cup.
The Porcupine Warriors are the only active club in the country as the local competitions have been suspended since 6 June 2019 after the Anas exposé.
They have played in two Confederation Cup matches in the group stage recording one loss and win against Al Hilal and ZESCO United.
And Tanko who together with head Coach Kwasi Appiah watched the team play on Wednesday against Zambian side Zesco United says it’s possible some of the players who excelled would get invitation for Kenya tie which comes off in March.
“We have been watching them, myself, coach Kwasi Appiah and Maxwell Konadu have been monitoring the team, they are the ones playing competitive football in the country and there are a lot of the players who are doing well so we are monitoring them,” Tanko said in an interview with Joy FM
“In March we have the game against Kenya and hopefully one friendly match so hopefully we will give some of them the chance.” He added.
Felix Annan who recently was branded as No. 1 Goalkeeper in Ghana by head Coach CK Akonnor has previously been invited into the Black Stars team under Kwasi Appiah and would be hoping to recapture a spot in the team.
