Former Chief Executive Officer of Asante Kotoko Jarvis Peprah has described Black Stars performance at the just ended FIFA World Cup in Qatar as the worse tournament in the history of Ghana Football.
Ghana, ranked 61st at the start of the tournament, suffered yet another early exit from the competition after losing to Portugal and Uruguay while beating South Korea in Group H.
The win over South Korea, however, was not enough to see the Black Stars progress from the group as they finished bottom and suffered elimination.
Speaking with ghanasportapage.com, Peprah revealed the Black Stars performed badly at the Mundial.
“If you look at it, we performed badly as a team in almost every game. if there’s something beneficial about this current Black Stars, then it’s the playing body and not the technical team. There were a few good players who rose to the occasion and made impacts in all our games.” he said.
“Unfortunately, the team lacked cohesion since most of the players were new to the team and barely understood each other. If we are to maintain these same crop of players looking at what most of them exhibited at the Mundial, I believe we will be a force to reckon with in going forward as a team and a football nation”
“The old players who are not showing good example in the team should be shown the exit and introduce guys who are poised to die for the country at all times. The World Cup comes every four years and we must start blending the players and prepare for the next World Cup and huge potential to wave the Flag of Ghana high and there is a brighter future for Ghana Football,” he added.
Andre Ayew missed from the spot in the game against Uruguay after Mohammed Kudus was fouled in the box. The South Americans then took advantage scoring two late goals to end Ghana’s hopes of progressing to the knockout stage
