Wednesday 3rd January , 2018 9:57 am

Ghana will be absent when elite nations gather in Russia to participate in the World Cup during the summer,and the Ghana Football Association have started the year off by accepting responsibility for a qualifying campaign that can best be described as a disaster.

The Black Stars failure to win a single game at home meant that Ghana would pick up just 7 points in the campaign,leaving Egypt to capture the sole ticket from Group E.

After securing appearances at the last three editions,Vice President of the Ghana Football Association George Afriyie admits things could have been done better.

“The FA needs to take the blame and we have to accept that things didn’t go well.

“It is only right that we take responsibility because when there has been success we have attributed it to our hardwork,” he told local radio station Asempa FM.

The GFA is set to congregate at an extra ordinary congress in the coming weeks,with the aim to plot better for the future in a bid avoid missing the 2022 edition.
