GFA ponders Asante's fate



The Ghana Football Association (GFA) will write to FIFA to seek clarification whether Solomon Asante is eligible to play for Ghana, according to its official website.

The Berekum Chelsea player has been in camp for the past six days and has been in sparkling form, having been part of the 30-man preliminary squad named by coach Kwesi Appiah for June's 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

Asante, the FA says, was born in Ghana to Ghanaian parents, but was thought to have played in a friendly match for Burkina Faso which could have made him eligible to play for Ghana.

As it stands, the site continues, it has now emerged that he also played in a tournament for the Burkina Faso national team. As a result, the GFA wants to seek FIFA's guidance over the matter to ensure that there is no confusion over his eligibility in future

Baffour's case

Also dropped from the team was 24-year-old Emmanuel Baffour. The reason was simply because he was late. The New Edubiase striker has been chasing deal with Turkish side Antalyspor which fell through.

He arrived in camp on Wednesday, and reports say he trained just once, leaving Kwesi Appiah no choice than to drop him since he had not been assessed properly. However, Lee Addy and Harrison Afful, who are yet to arrive in Ghana, have been included in the the 24-man squad.

Ghana hosts Lesotho on June 1, and then Zambia several days later.
