Former Ghana international Stephen Appiah has named his greatest Black Stars squad to have represented the nation.

Despite leading Ghana to it’s first FIFA World Cup appearance, the former Juventus midfielder named Ghana’s 1992 squad as the greatest he has watched.

The Ex-Ghana captain in an interview with Yaw Ofosu Larbi in an Instagram Live interview;

“I didn’t get the opportunity to watch the [19]63 team, I couldn’t watch the 1982 team but I had the chance to watch the [19]92 squad, ”

“Edward Ansah was our goalkeeper. We had Number 2 in Nii Darko Ankrah, we had in Number 3 our former coach, Kwesi Appiah. Frimpong Manso and Emmanuel Armah. Tony Baffoe, Prince Polley, Stanley Aborah, Nii Odartey Lamptey, Ali Ibrahim, Tony Yeboah and Abedi Pele, ” Stephen ‘Tornado’ Appiah added.

Interestingly, that squad failed to annex the 1992 African Cup of Nations after losing 11-10 on penalties to Cote D’Ivoire in the finals.

Having featured for Hearts of Oak before his journey abroad, Appiah spoke of how watching the Black Stars shaped his career.

“When we were growing up these were the players that we were watching. These were the players we wanted to be like and it was amazing watching them in 1992 in the African Cup of Nations. For me, I think that team is the best ever.”

Stephen Appiah retired in 2012 after enjoying a stellar footballing career both at home and abroad.
