Black Stars management committee member, Wilfred Osei Palmer is of the view the Black Stars will not disappoint the country as they prepare to take on Uganda.
The Black Stars start their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifications matches against Uganda at the Temale Sports Stadium on Friday, October 7.
The head coach of the team, Avram Grant has released a 23 man squad with the inclusion of only two local players, Hearts of Oak defender Inusah Musah and Wa All Stars midfielder Emmanauel Ocran who will be closely monitored by the coach.
“The coach delayed in releasing the squad because he had to do some assessment and some players were with their various clubs so he had to choose the right players who can play for the country.” Palmer told Asempa FM.
“The local players will start a non residential camping today at the Accra Sports Stadium but the other players will go straight to camp because the main concern is about the 23 man squad but as the coach said the local players will be closely monitored before the team play Uganda.
Quizzed on why Avram Grant called up only two local based players, Palmer said, “Calling up the players to the camp of the Black Stars is the sole duty of the coach but you can suggest to him and it is up to him to add what you are suggesting to him or reject it but you can’t force the coach to do what you want.
“Preparing for the qualifications, we shouldn’t underrate our opponents because we know what Egypt and Uganda can do but I know with our preparations and everything we are doing, I can promise that the Black Stars will start on a good note and I know they will not disappoint the country. We should all back the team to succeed because we are on course and I am very happy the players have taken the challenge.” He added.
