How fans reacted on social media
Most of the light outfielders are injured. And he called out some people who are currently out of shape leaving behind Shullup, Salis, Emmanuel Gyasi, Ashimeru and Joseph Painstil. So tell me brother. Will this squad be able to face Brazil?
Are you trying to tell us that Isshaku and Barnieh are better than Joseph Painstil?
Some people are playing politics with our national team. Salis Abdul Samed and Joseph Painstil have been playing 90 minutes week after week scoring goals almost without calling up, however they have called up players who are eating bench. Some even on team B. We won’t agree oo

Surprised not to see Joseph Painstil on the roster. What does Otto Addo see in Baba Rahman? Imoro Ibrahim is much better and Danlad Ibrahim is much better than Manaf Nurudeen
We have seen Fatau Isahaku play and we can all testify that he is overrated… why is he in the squad? I’m surprised I don’t see Jeffrey Schlupp, Joseph Painstil and Majeed Ashimiru.
