GFA President Says The Players They Took To AFCON 21 Are The Best Ghana Have

President of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Kurt Okraku, has defended the selection of the Black Stars squad that exited the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations  in Cameroon.

Ghana, who were chasing their fifth continental title were kicked out of the group stages without winning a single game.

Milovan Rajevac and his charges suffered an embarrassing 3-2 defeat to debutants Comoros in their final Group C games.


Following the exit, the quality of players have been questioned with many calling for the dissolution of the team.

Okraku, who in the past has openly admitted to being part of the selection process for players in the Black Stars squad, insists that the 28-man squad sent to Cameroon are currently the best in the country.

“The players we took to the Africa Cup of Nations are the best we have,” he said on Accra based Asempa FM.

“The Kamaldeens, the Kofi Kyerehs, the Fatawus and co are the best players we have.

“We need to be patient and trust the process. Cool heads are needed in this difficult time,” he added.

Ghana finished the competition with the joint-worst record, with just one point from three games.
