The Member of Parliament for Okaikwei Central, Patrick Boamah, has reiterated that the Black Stars should consider forfeiting their upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup play-off game against Nigeria.

The two West African rivals will renew the rivalry when they face off in March to battle for a place for the global showpiece in Qatar.

Speaking on the floor of Parliament on Wednesday after Ghana’s poor showing at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [AFCON] in Cameroon, the legislator called for a dissolution of the national team.

“If need be we should dissolve our national team and prepare a team over the next five years,” Patrick Boamah said.

“We should not waste our time playing Nigeria in the next World Cup qualifier. Look at the team Nigeria has, even though they are out of the tournament I don’t think with this current set-up, we can stand the Nigerians.”

Ghana endured a poor run in the tournament which ended with a humiliating 3-2 defeat to Comoros in their final Group C game.

The result saw Ghana finish at the bottom of Group C after failing to win any of their three group matches.

Also, this is the first time since 2006 that the Black Stars have been eliminated from the AFCON in the group stages.

Meanwhile, Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac has been sacked by the Ghana Football Association over the team’s poor showing.
