ABSENCE OF THREE BLACK STARS PLAYERS FROM CAMP FOR
THE ANGOLA FRIENDLY ON 18TH NOVEMBER 2009
In accordance with prescribed FIFA regulations for the release of players for national team matches the FA wrote to and secured the release of 20 players to honour the World Cup qualifying match against Mali on the 15th November, 2009 and the international friendly against Angola on the 18th November, 2009.
Unfortunately three players namely Michael Essien, Sulley Muntari and Asamoah Gyan did not travel with the team to Angola on Monday night for the Angola friendly.
The players stayed out without the permission of the Head Coach, Mr. Milovan Rajevac. The FA views this act with great concern and will investigate the matter further to inform its next course of action.
