Former Hearts of Oak captain and Black Stars defender Amankwah Mireku has said the current Black Stars lack quality players after the team’s defeat to South Africa in the World Cup qualifiers.

Ghana suffered her first defeat in the qualifiers to South Africa on Monday at the FnB stadium.

The Bafana Bafana inflicted a 1-0 victory over the Black Stars to go top of Group G.

Maritzburg United forward Bongokuhle Hlongwane strike in the dying embers of the game settled the encounter.

“Ghana lack quality players and at the same time consistency. If CK Akonnor is able to keep this current squad for a longer period, they will perform extraordinary, but it will also be disastrous for us if we call the players today and eject them tomorrow for a different squad”, he told Takoradi-based Ahoto FM.

He continued that, “footballers make coaches so if players are not performing, it affects the coach so Akonnor shouldn’t be blamed for the team’s abysmal performance.”

Black Stars return to action with a home and away matches against Zimbabwe and Ethiopia next month.
