Mixed opinions from fans as the Black Stars reveal their squad for the global prestigious competition.

Football supporters have taken to their social media platforms to express their mixed reactions after Ghana coach Otto Addo named his World Cup squad on Monday.

The tactician opted to leave Crystal Palace attacker Jeffrey Schlupp out of his squad, alongside Genk's Joseph Paintsil.

There was no place in the team for Roma hotshot Felix Afena-Gyan, while goalkeepers Richard Ofori and Joe Wollacott were ruled out owing to injuries.

Below is the pick of the fan reactions to the squad:

  • Ghana Fans.

    You can't win Cup but make us proud

    We already knew who you guys were going to call. we’re not so concerned about that. just make sure you perform. You won’t win the cup, but come home with good results and make us proud - Eii Scanty

  • Joe Wollacott Ghana.

    Reward Joe Wollacott

    He learned the national anthem. He took Ghana to the Afcon. His saves took the Black Stars to World Cup. He moved to Charlton so he can remain fit for the World Cup. Please Otto Addo n the technical team. Can we take Wollacott to the World Cup? He can just be on the bench - Nancy Brew
