Former Ghana International Mohammed Polo insists Coach Kwesi must end the trying and testing of new players and build on those he has already identified.

The Black Stars Coach has invited several players to the national team, indicating he is building for the future.

However, Mohammed Polo widely known as the “dribbling magician” during his playing days believes it time for Appiah to restrict the invitation of new payers and start building for AFCON 2019.

“Trying and testing of players must stop, Kwesi Appiah has given almost everybody the opportunity to showcase what he can do and he should know the players to work with by now.” Polo told

“He has played about six matches all with different kinds of players saying he is trying them. I think it is time for him to build the team itself and prepare them focusing on what they want to achieve.”

“His immediate major duty is the 2019 AFCON qualifiers and he must get a formidable team to make sure we qualify and win the trophy,”

“If Kwesi want to do well then he should start playing high profile friendlies with the players he has settled on because if he fails to win the 2019 AFCON, Ghanaians will not forgive him at all.” Polo concluded.

The Black Stars failed to qualify for the World Cup in Russia 2018, but Coach Kwesi Appiah will be focused on AFCON 2019 as that has been the main ask by the football Association.
