GHANA PLAYER RATINGS: Opoku And Kudus Impress As Stars End On A High

Published

on

Ghana completed their AFCON 2021 qualifiers with a convincing home win over Sao Tome at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Debut goals from Nicolas Opoku and Baba Rahman, separated by a brilliant penalty finish from Jordan Ayew, gave the stars all three points and ensured they topped the group, despite a mistake from goalkeeper Razak Abalora, which gifted Jokceleny Fernandes Carvalho an opportunity, which he finished brilliantly to make it 3-1.

Razak Abalora: (4) Will be disappointed with his error that led to the Sao Tome goal, despite being largely untroubled in the game prior to that point.

Benson Anang: (6) The 20-year-old was active and energetic without causing too much trouble for the opposition. I’m decent enough not to make a major mistake, and I’m hoping for more call-ups in the future.

Abdul Rahman, Baba: (7) A huge improvement from the South Africa game, he got into brilliant spaces all game and scored well after some great work from Kudus. Rahman will need to improve his consistency because his performance today was night and day compared to his previous outing.

Nicholas Opoku: (8) A powerful performance that deserved his debut goal. He was alert throughout the game, popping up everywhere there was danger and posing a constant threat from set pieces.

Ganiyu Ismail: (5) compact and composed without being flashy, and will leave feeling like he’s put in a good shift and acquitted himself well once more. More opportunities will present themselves.

Mubarak Wakaso: (7) Industrious, with a strong heart and blood. Before being replaced midway through the second half, he chased and hurried the opposition. A successful day’s work.

Partey, Thomas: (5) The Arsenal player had a quiet day. He never really got into the game and continues to struggle to dominate games for Ghana. He’ll get through it.

Bukari, Osman: (5) Busy as a bee, but not clearly enough to warrant a second half appearance, and was replaced by Gladson Awako at the start of the second half.

Ayew, Jordan: (6) He took his goal well from the spot and could have buried a few more, but he kept getting into space and his overall play was impressive. Jordan’s work ethic has improved his game, but as a striker, he should be scoring more frequently than he is.

Dede Ayew: (6) The captain worked hard as usual but would be disappointed if he didn’t score. Swansea will be concerned after he collapsed at the final whistle after attempting to score in the final minute.

Mohammed Kudus (Muslim): (7) The Ajax man put in another strong performance, tormenting the São Tomé midfield every time he touched the ball. Going forward, he’ll be a joy to watch and, based on this performance, he’ll only get better. Excellent assist for Baba Rahman’s goal.

Gladson Awako’s formal name is Gladson Awako (5) He was eager to impress when he finally made his debut for the Black Stars. His energy and willpower are unquestionable, though a few misplaced passes hurt his overall rating.

Ibrahim Imoro: (5) came in to replace Baba Rahman and was solid without doing too much. One to remember for the future.

Kwasi Okyere Wreidt: (4) The German-born made his debut and had one good chance to write his name in gold, but he hesitated and the opportunity passed him by. His off-the-ball movement was obvious.

Justice Blay: (4) Made his debut in place of Wakaso, received a yellow card, and made little of an impression offensively.

N/A for Kwame Poku.

FIFA Officially Bans Chad From All Football Activities For Life

FIFA Officially Bans Chad From All Football Activities For Life

Global football governing body, FIFA has banned Chad from football until further notice. The decision was taken by the Bureau of the Fifa Council on Wednesday and takes effect immediately.

Note that in December 2020, Fifa had rejected a request from the country’s ministry of sports to dissolve the Chadian Football Federation.

On March 10, the minister for youth and sports released a statement to prevent the Chadian Football Association, FTFA, from performing its obligatory duties due to a dispute between both parties.

CAF then disqualified Chad from the Africa Cup of Nations qualification race, just a few days prior to their fixtures against Namibia and Mali, following the sport Minister’s actions. FIFA has now waded in, banning the country henceforth.

FIFA says the ban was as a result of government interference in the football operations of the African country but announced that the suspension will be reversed as soon as the relevant government decisions have been revoked.

“The Bureau of the Fifa Council decided to suspend the Chadian Football Association (FTFA) with immediate effect due to government interference,” a statement from the Fifa website read.

“The suspension was prompted by the recent decisions of Chadian government authorities to permanently withdraw the powers delegated to the FTFA, establish a national committee for the temporary management of football and seize control of the FTFA’s premises.

“The suspension will be lifted once the relevant government decisions have been repealed and the FTFA and its management, led by president Moctar Mahamoud Hamid, have confirmed to Fifa that the FTFA premises are again under its control.”
