Ex-Ghana international, Mohammed Polo has indicated that the new players in the Black Stars team should convince head coach C.K Akonnor that they are ready to play for the national team when given the chance to feature in the Qatar friendly today.
Last Friday, the Black Stars were in action against the Eagles of Mali and embarrassingly lost 3-0 at the end of the 90 minutes.
On the Matchday, most of the new players invited for the friendly match had the opportunity to play.
After an unimpressive showing, Mohammed Polo believes they should convince Coach Akonnor that they are ready for the Black Stars when the team faces off with the Maroons of Qatar today.
“He should reassess the players he has. These are new players in the team. It is only 3 players who are known faces there. That is Partey, Jordan, and Dede. The rest of them should convince the coach that they are prepared to play”, Polo said in an interview with Class FM.
The former Hearts of Oak coach added, “That is why he called them. He has confidence in them. That is why he asked them to come. But if the performance will be the same thing like what happened in Mali then I think the old guys should come back”.
The Ghana friendly match against Qatar will kick-off at 15:30GMT later this afternoon and will be played at the Titanic sports stadium.
