Ace sports journalist Dan Kwaku Yeboah has questioned some of the decisions made by Black Stars coach Otto Addo regarding his selection for the two matches against Mali and Central African Republic in the World Cup qualifiers. 2026.

Kwaku Yeboah raised preliminary issues with two calls made by Otto Addo: the inclusion of Jojo Wollacott and the exclusion of Andre Dede Ayew.

Despite Media’s head of sports questioned Otto Addo’s decision to choose Jojo Wollacott instead of Medeama FC’s Felix Kyei, considered the second best goalkeeper in the 2023/2024 CAF Champions League.

Kwaku Yeboah believes Jojo Wollacott, who did not enjoy his best season with Scottish side Hibernian, should not have been chosen ahead of Felix Kyei.

“Whose son is Jojo Wollacott? The Medeama goalkeeper was ranked as the second best goalkeeper in the CAF Champions League and still couldn’t make it to the Black Stars, but Wollacott was called up,” he said.

Regarding Dede Ayew, Kwaku Yeboah demanded clarity and urged Otto Addo and those in charge of the Black Stars to clarify the matter.

Kwaku Yeboah stated that if the decision to exclude Dede from the team is part of long-term plans to phase out senior players from the club, then it should be duly communicated to him and Ghanaians.

“In the season that just ended, Dede Ayew scored five goals in 19 games. His numbers are better than some of those included in the team, so if you are fed up with him and don’t want him in the team anymore, that’s another argument. “His current form, according to statistics, is better than when he was invited to the AFCON. “Why was he eliminated?” He questioned.

Meanwhile, eighteen players have reported to the Black Stars camp ahead of their upcoming matches against Mali and Central African Republic in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Black Stars opened their camp on Thursday, May 31, 2024 in Accra ahead of the two matches scheduled for June.

Coach Otto Addo invited 26 players for the task, but only 18 players showed up to camp on the first day.
