Sporting activities Information of Wednesday, 12 June 2019
Abdul Majeed Waris has skipped out on a spot in Ghana’s ultimate African Cup of Nations squad for a 3rd consecutive time.
In 2015, Waris was selected for the match but was pressured to pull out of the squad right after finding up an personal injury. He was replaced by Mahatma Otoo and the group went on to access the finals.
The FC Porto striker was dropped by coach Avram Grant for the 2017 version, exactly where Ghana finished fourth just after losing -1 to Burkina Faso.
Irrespective of his his productive mortgage spell with FC Nantes final time, exactly where he scored seven targets in all levels of competition, the 27 yr old has once more been missed for the forthcoming 2019 version in Egypt.
Mentor Kwesi Appiah controversially dropped Waris in favor of Jordan Ayew (Crystal Palace, England), Caleb Ekuban (Trabzonspor, Turkey) and Kwabena Owusu (Leganes, Spain).
Waris has 31 caps less than his belt, but is but to make an physical appearance for Ghana at the continent’s flagship tournament.
