After the exit of Asamoah Gyan from the Black Stars, there seems to be a gap in the attacking department of the team.
Jordan Ayew, among players were expected to fill that shoe but we were later told the Crystal Palace was a winger and not that typical striker you can find in Asamoah Gyan.
Gyan, now 36 is the all-time top scorer of the Black Stars and has an incredible record at the world cup.
A few days after Ghana qualified for the world cup, he was seen training and it ignited speculations that he might appear in the list for the players who will play at Qatar.
For some weeks now, discussions about players who will play at the world stage for Ghana have been in the lips of many.
If you analyse the conversation, those who are calling for foreign-born are not too far from right. Over the weekend, Ghanaian players like Inaki Williams, Nico Williams and Eddie Nketiah were incredible for their clubs.
Those who watched Inaki play against Atletico Madrid will attest to the fact that he is the top striker Ghana is looking for. You could see him pressing, giving defenders pressure, moving into spaces, dribbling and scoring.
Similar characteristics can be said of Nketiah. The young Arsenal forward was seen giving defenders’ problems. His pace and skills give an indication that the future of the Black Stars is bright.
The prospects are good if these players lead the attack of the future Black Stars and this subject to the technical team seeing what others are seeing. What happens to Afena Gyan and others?
In the 4-3-3 system, Gyan can play alongside these two. Depending on the tactics of the coach any of them can play but as at the time this article was being written, these two were phenomenal.
The hope is that all these foreign-born players will be willing to accept the invitation and their documentation can go through successfully.
More of these players will be exposed in subsequent articles as we continue to build a formidable team for the world cup and the African Cup of Nations.
