The Ghana football Association has dismiss reports in the media that Black Stars Coach Kwesi Appiah has subjected his provisional 30-man squad for the tournament in Brazil. According to the reports, there are no major surprises in the squad except for the inclusion of former Arsenal midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong and defender Jeffrey Schlupp who plays for English side Leicester City.All the players that were called up for Ghana’s last World Cup qualifier against Egypt have all been included.But Ghana FA president Kwasi Nyantakyi who doubles as the Black Stars management committee head in an interview with Joy sports stated that the provisional squad is not out and all reports suggesting the inclusion and exclusion of certain players should not be taken serious because it is just a hoax.“We have a meeting on May 12 and that is the day we will release the squad so any suggestion now is premature and speculative in nature,” he told Joy sports“We will do 30 and that is what we have agreed so the coach will bring a 30 man squad to us and it will be reduced to 23 as required by FIFA on the due date.”
