George Alhassan: Only Partey can make our Afcon 1982 Black Stars squad

Former Ghana striker George Alhassan believes the current squad of the Black Stars is a weak one.

Alhassan is a two-time Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) winner with Ghana – the 1982 and 1984 editions, emerging the top scorer of the latter with four goals.

The 64-year-old says none will have started a game back then and only Arsenal’s new signing Thomas Partey could make the bench of the 1982 and 1984 squad.

“None of the current Black Star players will make it into the starting line up of the 1982 and 1984 squad.”

“However, Arsenal’s Thomas Partey can make it onto the bench,” Alhassan stated on Angel FM.

It’s been 38 years since Ghana began the search for their fifth Afcon trophy, having gone close in 2010 and 2015.

The country last won its title in 1982 when they defeated host nation Libya 7-6 on penalties.

The team’s recent game produced a 5-1 battering of Qatar in Turkey on Monday.
