Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has named his AFCON squad but did not include a single Kumasi Asante Kotoko player to represent the nation at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
Despite Kotoko’s captain Ismail Ganiu tipped to make the list due to the fact that he’s always almost been present in the team in recent months, the Serbian gaffer ignored the well established center-back.
Goalkeeper Razak Abalora was also not considered as Hearts of Oak SC goalie, Richard Attah was given the nod ahead of the inform Kotoko goalkeeper who’s omission could be linked to an error he made in Morocco friendly.
Black Stars will begin camping on Wednesday, December 22, 2021, in Qatar city for a 17-day training camp in preparation.
Black Stars will play three friendly matches while in Qatar. The Ghana Football Association has already concluded talks with Algeria while engagements are ongoing for two additional matches.
Ghana will leave Doha for Yaoundé on Friday, January 7, three days before their opening match against Morocco.
After Morocco, Rajevac’s side will face Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s Gabon team before their last game against debutants Comoros.
