AFCON 2021: Ghana Should Have Just Called Me – Kevin-Prince Boateng On Black Stars’ Defeat
Former Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder, Kevin-Prince Boateng, has reacted to the Ghana Black Stars’ defeat in their first game at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

In a tweet on Monday, Kevin-Prince Boateng said the Management of the senior national soccer team should have reached out to him ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations to be part of the playing body in Cameroon.

Despite the loss, he is optimistic that the team, led by Milovan Rajevac, will win the next game and secure 3 points in the tournament that started on January 9.

“Ghana should have just called me. Next game 3 points. Let’s go black stars.”

During the game, the Atlas Lions of Morocco beat Ghana by a goal to nil.

Seven minutes to full time, Sofiane Boufal got the ball into the goal post in favour of Morocco.

Kevin-Prince Boateng has not played for Ghana since 2014 as he is serving an indefinite suspension imposed on him by the erstwhile Ghana Football Association (GFA) administration led by Kwesi Nyantakyi.

The 34-year-old was suspended after he flouted disciplinary rules in the Black Stars camp during the Fifa World Cup in Brazil.

He is said to have used some vulgar words on the then coach, Kwasi Appiah leading to his dismissal from the tournament.

Kevin-Prince Boateng shares similar optimism with Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam Nartey George, who has said he still has hope in the senior national team to deliver in their subsequent games.

“Still, I want to believe. I want to give them the benefit of the doubt. I want to hold on to hope. 2 more games to go! It is still possible to twinkle in Cameroon! Let’s go Black Stars!”

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Information reaching GhArticles.com from GOAL.com can reveals that Callum Hudson-Odoi is contemplating switching from England to Ghana.

On March 29, Ghana defeated Nigeria in two legs to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The 21-year-old hasn’t played for Gareth Southgate’s Three Lions in almost two years, and he’s rejected down recent Under-21 call-ups.

Despite winning three caps for England, Hudson-Odoi is still free to switch nationalities.

This follows a FIFA rule change in September 2020 that allowed players with three or less caps to move once they turned 21.

The dual nationality of Hudson-Odoi comes from his father Bismark, who played football for Hearts of Oak in Ghana.

Hudson-Odoi has been to Ghana on vacation recently, in January 2022 and last summer.

When asked whether he was considering switching, he answered, “We will wait till that moment comes.”

Hudson-Odoi has reportedly met with President Nana Akufo-Addo and the Ghana Football Association.

President Arrives Late For Presidential Cup Match
The kick-off of the President’s Cup game between Hearts of Oak and Asante Kotoko at the Accra Sports Stadium was delayed due to the late arrival of the president, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo.

The players had already been sent onto the field and had exchanged pleasantries amongst themselves and were ready for the referee to whistle for the commencement of the encounter before the convoy of the president arrived at the match centre.

The game, which was initially expected to get underway at exactly 18:00 GMT was made to wait for an additional 30 minutes as the match officials and players waited for the president to perform the usual ceremonial kick.

Despite calls to use their fringe players for the game, both Samuel Boadu and Prosper Ogum Narteh named strong starting line-ups for the game.

Hearts and Kotoko both made one change to the team that faced each other two weeks ago in the Ghana Premier League, with Isaac Mensah replacing Gladson Awako in the Hearts set-up while Justice Blay came in for Dickson Afoakwa in the Kotoko line-up.

The President’s Cup is an annual ceremonial game organized by the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) to be played in honour of the president of the country.

Only Vaccinated Supporters Permitted To Watch Ghana Vs Nigeria Game – Sports Ministry

Published

on

This, the Ministry said, is part of safety protocols put in place by the government to ensure that the spread of COVID-19 is curbed.

In a statement released on Tuesday, the Ministry further noted that the ‘no vaccination, no entry’ policy will also apply to all domestic football competitions, including the Ghana Premier League.

The Black Stars will host the Super Eagles at the Cape Coast Stadium before travelling to the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja for the return fixture.

The first leg is scheduled for Friday, March 25, 2022, while the second leg will take place on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.

The Ministry of Youth and Sports wishes to inform the General Public particularly the football fans who wish to enjoy their favourite games at the various league centres including the game between the Ghana Black Stars and their Nigerian Counterparts at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium on the 25th March, 2022 to ensure strict adherence to ALL Covid-19 Safety Protocols put in place by the Government.

To this end, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has directed the managers of the stadia (National Sports Authority) and the Ghana Football Association (GFA) to admit ONLY fans who are fully vaccinated into the stadia at various centres on match days.

Further, the Ghana Health Service will mount vaccination centres at Kumasi, Cape Coast, Takoradi and Tamale stadia, one week before the Ghana- Nigeria derby.

With these measures put in place, it is expected that the facilities managers can admit as many fans as the facilities can contain provided that such fears have been fully vaccinated with the requisite vaccination card.

Furthermore, the wearing of Face Masks, the use of Hand Sanitizers and Social Distancing will also be strictly enforced. We count on the cooperation of all Stakeholders, the family of the sport (football) and the General Public to ensure strict compliance.
