Several members of the Black Stars could have had prior knowledge of selection for the World Cup according to revelations made in theDzamefe report.

The final report of the Commission set up to investigate the circumstances that led to the exit of Ghana from the World Cup in Brazil last year and the accompanying embarrassment after players went on strike over delayed payments of fees was made public this week after the release of a government white paper with recommendations last week.

The Commission raised the question as to how Inkoom,then plying his trade with Platanias in Greece could have known he was going to be a part of the team.
