‘Black Stars are not up to World Cup standard’ – Nyaho-Tamakloe


    Erstwhile chairman of the Ghana Football Association, Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe was left unimpressed by the performance of the Black Stars despite sealing World Cup qualification.

    The Black Stars secured a fourth World Cup berth at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium when they held the Super Eagles to a 1-1 draw in an epic clash on Tuesday.

    Otto Addo’s charges pulled a scoreless draw in the first instalment of the West African derby and repeated the same outcome but Partey’s first-half strike helped the Black Stars qualify for Qatar 2022 on away goal rule.

    Following the success of reaching the fourth berth at the global showpiece, Ghanaians have showered praise on the Black Stars but board member of Hearts of Oak Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe reckons the display does not merit a World Cup status.

    Dr Tamakloe, who criticized the appointment of Otto Addo as interim manager of the Black Stars, identified the loopholes in the Black Stars which he argues make the team half baked.

    “I think generally they did well, and to some extent, they gave us the hope that the Black Stars have a future [but] per the game yesterday, we [Black Stars] are not up to the standard of World Cup. If you watched yesterday’s game carefully we have a problem with the wings,” he stressed.
