Ghana World Cup squad announced, five Talent Radar youngsters make the list

The Ghana World Cup squad was announced earlier today with Akwasi Appiah naming a whole host of youngsters which pleases our Talent Radar feature a lot, with many players to look out for during the summer spectacle in Brazil.

Some unfortunate players were cut from the earlier squad named by the head coach. The biggest surprise was the omission of talented 22-yr-old striker, Mahatma Otoo. 21-yr-old Yussuf Chisbah was also left out while defenders Kwabena Adusei and goalkeeper Brimah Razak also won’t travel with the squad. Jerry Akaminko, 21-yr-old Jeffrey Schulpp & David Accam also didn’t make it.

Five Talent Radar youngsters were named in the final list of 23 players, the most exciting of which and definitely one to keep an eye out for in Brazil, is Spartak Moscow’s Majeed Waris who spent last season on loan at Valenciennes and made it into our Talent Radar Ligue 1 Team of the Season. Marsellie’s 22-yr-old Jordan Ayew also joins his brother, Andre Ayew who is the vice-captain of the side, but may not play that significant a role. Christian Atsu who spent last season on loan at Vitesse from Cheslea was also unsurprisingly named in the squad. Afriyie Acquah & Rashid Sumaila were the other youngsters named in the squad.

Here’s the final Ghana World Cup squad:

GOALKEEPERS: Fatau Dauda (Orlando Pirates), Adam Kwarasey (Stromsgodset), Stephen Adams (Aduana Stars)

DEFENDERS: Samuel Inkoom (Platanias), Daniel Opare (Standard Liege), Harrison Afful (Esperance), John Boye (Rennes), Jonathan Mensah (Evian), Rashid Sumalia (Mamelodi Sundowns)

MIDFIELDERS: Michael Essien (AC Milan), Sulley Muntari (AC Milan), Rabiu Mohammed (Kuban Krasnodar), Kwadwo Asamoah (Juventus), Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu (Udinese), Afriyie Acquah (Parma), Christian Atsu (Vitesse), Albert Adomah (Middlesbrough), Andre Ayew (Marseille), Mubarak Wakaso (Rubin Kazan)

STRIKERS: Asamoah Gyan (Al Ain), Kevin-Prince Boateng (Schalke 04), Abdul Majeed Waris (Valenciennes), Jordan Ayew (Sochaux)
