“World Cup qualifiers a test of your quality”- GFA boss to Black Stars

President of the Ghana Football Association Kurt Okraku has challenged the Black Stars to show their quality by qualifying the nation for the 2022 World Cup.

Ghana begins its qualifying campaign against Ethiopia on September 3 at the Cape Coast.

According to Okraku, qualifying for the World Cup in Qatar is the ultimate test of the quality of the team.

“It is a moment I have been waiting for as the leader of this family because this is my first time.

“It is a moment each one of you should be looking up to if you are a top player.

“If you are top player you need to belong to the topmost platform in football.

“If any of you is not a top player please this is the door and you can walk out.

“It means you don’t belong to this family and the platform that confronts us beginning on Friday.

“If you are a top player, Dede, this is the time.

“If you call yourself a top player, the world cup is the biggest platform you can think about where all the big players assemble to show what they made of.

“If you are a top coach this is the time to show it, C.K.

‘This is the time to show that you are the best,” he told the Black Stars ahead of their first World Cup qualifier  against Ethiopia.

Ghana will have to qualify top of Group G which also has South Africa and Zimbabwe before progressing to the third round for a two legged play off phase against group winners.
