AFCON 2019: Don’t Pressure Kwesi Appiah To Release Squad For AFCON – Augustine Arhinful
Former Black Stars striker, Augustine Arhinful has implored Ghanaian football loving not to pressure Coach Kwesi Appiah to release the squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.
The technical handlers of the senior national team are expected to name the squad for the 32nd edition for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The Black Stars have been charged to win the upcoming tournament after coming close to win the ultimate in 1992, 2010 and 2015.
However, with less than two months for kick off, Ghanaian football loving fans are desperate to know the players for the tournament but the former Ashgold forward has called on Ghanaians not to pressure Coach Kwesi Appiah to name his squad for the tournament.
“Let's not rush Coach Kwasi Appiah into naming his squad,” he told Asempa FM.
“Although the EPL has ended, some other leagues are still ongoing.”
The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations will kick off on Jun 21 to July 19.
Ghana are in Group F alongside Benin, Cameroon and Guinea Bissau.
