Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah has warned his players that regular playing time with their clubs abroad will be the key determining factor in his call-ups to the Black Stars.
The Black Stars trainer insists that regular playing time is the key to achieving the dreams of making their third successive World Cup appearance.
With some of the key European leagues already underway, Appiah is expecting Black Stars players to fight for stating places with their clubs to aid Ghana’s World Cup ambitions.
Some players struggled for playing time last season but the Ghana coach is hoping for a change to improve the fortunes of the Black Stars.
“We are all hoping and praying that each and every player of the Black Stars gets a starting line-up place in their various clubs,” Appiah told Radio XYZ.
“It’s not going to be easy but it is achievable.
“They all need to fight very hard and win the confidence of their various coaches.
“Once they all get quality playing time, it will not help them alone but it will be a huge benefit to the nation at large,” Appiah hinting that he will rely on players playing regularly for their clubs.
Ghana must avoid a defeat against Zambia in September to reach the final phase of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers.
