Ibrahim Danlad is not part of the Black Stars squad named for the AFCON 2023 qualifier against Angola.

Prior to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar, two local-based players were selected but since the departure of Afriyie Barnieh to FC Zurich, it was now left with only Ibrahim Danlad.

Despite being a starter for Kumasi Asante Kotoko, the U-20 AFCON champion and best goalkeeper was dropped by the new gaffer of the Black Stars of Ghana, Chris Hughton.


Meanwhile; former Black Stars player, Thomas Duah has called on the newly appointed Black Stars coach, Chris Hughton to blend local players with foreign players to have a good team.

In building a solid team, the former AshantiGold SC gaffer has pleaded with Hughton and the technical team not to overlook local players.


According to him, the locally based players will create competition in the team and will also have a good team with their inclusion.
