Ghana Drops In Latest FIFA Rankings

Black Stars coach, Charles Kwablan Akonnor, has named a strong 30-man squad for next month’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa.

The Black Stars will face Ethiopia on Friday, September 3, 2021, in Cape Coast before a trip to Johannesburg to play South Africa on Monday, September 6, 2021.

In a list sighted by GhArticles.com, posted by the Ghana Football Association, the squad is led by captain Andre Ayew.

The 30-man squad includes debutants goalkeeper Abdul Manaf Nurudeen of KAS Eupen in Belgium and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh of Hearts of Oak.

Goalkeeper Richard Ofori of Orlando Pirates and Richard Attah of Hearts of Oak are all making a return to the squad.

Meanwhile familiar faces, Jordan Ayew, Mubarak Wakaso, Daniel Amartey, Alexander Djiku and Kudus Mohammed are all in the team. Although Kudus Mohammed and Thomas Partey are nursing injuries, it is expected that they will be fit for the games next month.

The team is poised on making a return to the global stage, having drawn a plan which includes playing some high profile friendlies and making sure the team is well catered for.

Felix Annan Leaves Asante Kotoko After 10-years

Felix Annan Confirms Asante Kotoko exit

Goalkeeper Felix Annan has announced his departure from Asante Kotoko after 10 years at the club ahead of the 2021/22 Ghana football season.

The 26-year-old joined the Porcupine Warriors in 2011 from Gomoa Fetteh Feyenoord Academy.

Felix Annan was shipped out on loan several years but later rose through the ranks to become the club’s captain.

However, the enterprising shotstopper fell out of favour with the club’s former coach Maxwell Konadu last season but failed to regain his position under Mariano Barreto.

He, thus, lost his place to Kwame Baah and later Razak Abalora and that even affected his involvement in the senior national team since he was later dropped from the Black Stars.

In a heartwarming message, Felix Annan thanked the club for their support and pledged his love for the club.

Although Annan stayed on and tried to fight for a starting place in Kotoko’s squad, it proved fruitless and he has decided to leave the club after 10 years. He has become the third player to leave Kotoko after Augustine Okrah and Naby Keita.

He made his Ghana debut in 2019 against Namibia in an international friendly. He was also linked to a number of clubs in the South African clubs.

Before the start of the second round of the 2020/21 football season, Annan was strongly linked to Medeama SC.

Annan was part of the Black Stars squad who played in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The English sportswear giants have supplied the club’s technical and management team with Hearts of Oak branded apparel in the last two seasons.

Hearts of Oak finished the 2020/21 season as winners of the Ghana Premier League and FA Cup competition.
