Anxiety rocks Black Stars players as Appiah eyes massive shake-up

Anxiety is growing among established players of the Black Stars as new coach Kwesi Appiah eyes massive squad shake-up.

The players who are predominantly based in Europe must now justify their inclusion in the team as Appiah will be under pressure to deliver the country's long wait for an African title.

It will not be business as usual for some of the 'prima donna' in the team.

The future of some of the established players are unclear as the new coach plans a massive overhaul of the current squad.

The Black Stars will face Ethiopia at home in June in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
