Appiah Announces Ghana Squad

Ghana Coach Kwesi Appiah Nominates 26-Man World Cup Squad

By David Kappel - May 12, 2014 05:15 PM @kappilinho

Ghana coach, Kwesi Appiah, has named his World Cup squad on Monday which should calm the intense debate in the country over who to pick.

Kwesi named 26 players on his provisional list and still has to cut the number down to 23 players before the start of tournament.

Ghana-born Kwesi is the first African coach to take Ghana to the World Cup, joining a small group of African coach to have managed on the biggest stage in world football.

He was Ghana’s assistant coach between 2007 and 2012 and says he has learned from the experience at the 2010 World Cup under predecessor Milovan Rajevac.

We all remember Ghana’s achievements in 2010, when only a Luis Suarez handball could stop them from reaching the semi-final.

This is Ghana’s third World Cup appearance. In 2006 there the only African side to advance to the second round and in 2010 they became only the third nation from Africa to qualify for the quarter-final.

After beating Egypt 7-3 on aggregate, Ghana qualified for the World Cup and have been drawn in Group G with Germany, Portugal and the USA.

Here is the full squad:

Goalkeepers:

Adam Kwarasey, Fatau Dauda, Stephen Adams

Defenders:

Samuel Inkoom, Daniel Opare, Harrison, Jeffrey Schlupp, John Boye, Jonathan Mensah, Jerry Akaminko, Rashid Sumalia

Midfielders:

Kwadwo Asamoah, Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari, Rabiu Mohammed, Emmanuel Ageymang, Badu Afriyie Acquah, Christian Atsu, Albert Adomah, Andrew Auew, Wakaso Mubarak, David Titi Accam

Attackers:

Asamoah Gyan, Kevin-Prince Boateng, Majeed Waris, Jordan Ayew
