The Ghana World Cup roster was published on Monday, and some of the most significant absences were Mubarak Wakaso, Jojo Wollacott, and Richard Ofori.

Otto Addo revealed his final team in Accra, and the aforementioned three players did not make the cut.

Wakaso was cut because the technical staff didn’t see him as a good fit for the squad, while Wollacott and Ofori were injured and will miss the competition, which starts on November 24.

Included on Otto Addo’s 26-man roster are Andre Ayew, Thomas Partey, Jordan Ayew, Baba Rahman, Alexander Djiku, Inaki Williams, Tariq Lamptey, and Daniel Amartey.
