Audio Attachment:Football analyst, Nana Agyemang has criticized handlers of the country's national teams for not setting "correct targets" with actionable plans to win laurels for the nation.
Nana Agyemang said the handlers of the teams seemed content with setting short term targets and playing to satisfy supporters instead of strategizing to win trophies.
Speaking on the Super Morning Show on Joy FM, Wednesday, Nana Agyemang said while European countries strategize to win the ultimate, Ghana's plans have always been to gain sympathies and to "do well".
"What do you go to the World Cup to do; to do well? What do we go to the African Cup to do; to do well? What do you play international tournaments for; to do well? Well, in Ghana we only go to do well and we are happy to do well," he lamented.

I think Chris and Nana have strong arguments but my concern is the rule they suggested by set out to make call ups based only in first team appearances. I believe making the first team should yes, be the main major factor in player call up but this cant be made a rule because there maybe others who are bit part players but still "better" than some starters elsewhere...due to the competitiveness of that team. Spelling it as a rule may tie the hands of the technical team in charge. Fatau seems a safe pair of hands for the team. Essien, Sulley and Kevin (returnees) somewhat were a blessing when they abandoned the team...they offered new guys to like Andre at the time to step into leadership roles. they are only returning for the world cup. I agree they should be subs to add touch to where the team falls short in a given match.
