- Kwesi Appiah says he will be recalling Asamoah Gyan and the Ayew brothers
- The three players were left out of Ghana's squad prior to the clash against Kenya
Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says he is ready to recall the trio of Asamoah Gyan, Andre Ayew and Jordan Ayew for future games following his side’s poor show against Kenya.
Appiah left out the three players for the last Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Kenya to which Ghana lost 1-0.
However, Appiah has explained why he left out the three key players for the crucial game.
Before the Black Stars lost the match to the Kenyans on Saturday, the former Asante Kotoko captain revealed that leaving out the three top players in Saturday’s AFCON qualifier would give him the chance to see other talents for the country.
“I have good players, who are capable of doing a good job. It is the time for other young players to show what they can do even for future matches,” said Appiah.
“We have a lot of players in Ghana and I am working to understand and know them well.
“It does not mean that the door is closed for the three players, or any other player left out…no, only that we are also giving a chance to others so that we can evaluate the depth and quality of players we have in Ghana.
Ghana started her campaign on a high note, after defeating Ethiopia 5-0. A brace from Raphael Dwamena and goals apiece from Gyan, Ebenezer Ofori and Boye were enough to hand Walya Antelopes a lesson.
The four-time African champions still top Group F despite losing 1-0 to the Kenyans.
The lost to Kenya was Ghana’s first defeat to the Harambee Stars after 15 years.
