Akunnor dumps local breeds for foreign shepherds in latest call up

C.K Akunnor, Black Stars head coach

Ghana's national team head coach, Charles Kwabena Akunnor, has shockingly made another set of call ups with only 9 local players making the list.

Black Stars will square it off in  the double header Afcon qualifiers during the international break.

Earlier, the Black Stars gaffer made call ups involving only local players before trimming the number to 23 in late February.

The latest call up has revealed majority of players plying their trade in Europe with only 9 local players maintained to play in the final two hurdles involving South Africa and Sao Tomme and Principe at the ongoing Afcon qualifiers.

Black Stars are levelled with South Africa with 9 points while Sudan takes the 3rd position with 6 points as Sao Tomme and Principe becoming the whipping boys in group C.  The main tournament  is scheduled to come off next year in Cameroon.
