Bechem United forward Augustine Okrah has explained why he rejected Black Stars call-up.
In an interview with PKays Corner on why he turned down the call up for the Japan Tournament, Augustine Okrah said, he got injured during their game against Aduana Stars, hence didn’t want to go and disgrace himself reason why he didn’t report to the Black Stars.
He believes that, as a player, you must be in good condition to honour a call up to play for the National Team. This he said, as a player, you need to be fit to play well in the Back Star because, if you don’t play well, they may not call you again.
“Lord Zico told me [about the Black Stars callup for the Japan tournament], but the condition I was in [injured], I could not go and disgrace myself.” He said.
“As a player, if you’re not fit and you don’t play well in the national team, they may not call you again.”
Augustine Okrah said “I told Lord Zico to let the officials of the Black Stars be aware of my condition and that I cannot report to camp”
