Black Stars: These are the 7 players who were in the 2021 AFCON squad but snubbed by Otto Addo for the clash against Nigeria


    Interim Ghana coach Otto Addo has announced his 27-man Black Stars squad for the crucial 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying double-header against Nigeria.

    The German-based trainer included former Dreams FC left-back Montari Kamaheni while dropping a number of players from the squad including the experienced Jonathan Mensah.

    Addo, an ex-Ghana international himself, settled on a number of alternatives following suspensions and injuries to some of his players.

    Ghana exited the 2021 AFCON tournament at the group stage following a shambolic showing which culminated in a shameful loss to tournament minnows Comoros.

    Following the announcement of the squad on Tuesday morning, Ghana Sports Online has taken a look at the 7 players who have been dropped from the squad in the games.
