Black Stars Motivated And Committed To Play Asante Kotoko Friendly - Dan Kweku Yeboah

The Public Relations Officer for the FIFA/CAF Normalisation Committee, Dan Kwaku Yeboah has dispelled reports that the Black Stars players are not interested in playing against Asante Kotoko on Friday.

After Ghana's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sierra Leone was cancelled, the Football Association decided to play a friendly match against Ghana Premier League side Asante Kotoko at the Baba Yara Sports on Friday.

There have concerns about the test match and some think it is inappropriate to risk the players in a non-competitive fixture.

''The players agreed unanimously to play against Asante Kotoko. Therefore news circulating that some players have refused to play is fake news. No player is reluctant ahead of the friendly against Kotoko,'' he told Accra-based Asempa FM

''The fact that they have decided to stay and play is enough commitment and a sign of patriotism.''

The match has been scheduled to kick off at 16:00GMT.
