Ghanaians criticise Black Stars security for letting CAR captain slap Jordan

The Crystal Palace attacker, who came off the bench to score the game-winning goal in stoppage time and snap the Black Stars' eight-game losing record, was instrumental in Ghana's triumph over Mali.

He was given a starting position due to his performance in the next match against the Central African Republic (CAR), in which he scored three goals and helped Ghana win 4-3. Ghana has not won consecutive games since September 2023.

Let me talk for Jordan. It's his brother. Sure, he wants him to be next to him, but what will happen: it's my decision; it's our coaching staff's decision.
As a brother, he would like him to be next to him. But, I have a responsibility for the national team, for Ghana, and I have to decide what is best for the team, and who knows? Maybe he’s there, but I don’t know.

Why do the journalists keep asking him about him? He can’t dodge when they ask can he?

Anasmalcolmx stated:

We still need Dede Ayew he always do his best for Ghana

Kutrupis stated:

If he's on good form, select him based on merit. CR7 has been playing for the Portuguese for 20yrs. Ghanaians retire players too much. If he's not good don't select him

ljay429 stated:

Partey controls the game well as a captain so there’s no need for Dede Ayew again.
