Head Coach of the UG men’s soccer team Alhaji Yusif , has summoned a 30-man squad as the team enhances preparation ahead of next Year’s mini GUSA at the KNUST.
The criteria for selection was hugely dependent on the performances of the players at the just ended UG soccer league. Old faces such as the quartet of Vladimir, Cosmos Yemih , Goalkeeper Gbadasu, Miracle (Akuaffo Hall) ,
Ezekiel of Limann Hall, all earned call-ups. Richard Mensah Sarbah (Kwapong), Isaac Acheampong and Rodney Anane (T.F) , Daniel Yekple of Mensah Sarbah Hall , Orlando of Legon Hall, and Enoch Ohene Larbi (Jubilee Hall) were amongst the new players who were invited.
Coach Alhaji Yussif is expected to prune down the squad to 23 players by December 18th before the final camping for the mini GUSA games schedule for KNUST in January.
Speaking to Univers sports, Coach Adu Sackey ( Dreams FC 2nd team coach and member of UG technical team), revealed that they have been satisfied with the average performance displayed so far, and are hopeful that they will finally settle on a final 23 who can bring back the glory days of University of Ghana soccer, and reach the feat attained by the 2013 UG squad that won Gold, at West Afican University Games (WAUG) in 2013.
