Calls intensify for Richmond Lamptey’s inclusion in Black Stars squad for AFCON 2023


Ghanaian football enthusiasts are buzzing with excitement over the stellar performances of Asante Kotoko midfielder Richmond Lamptey, advocating for his inclusion in the upcoming Black Stars squad ahead of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The clamour for Lamptey’s inclusion gained momentum after yet another impressive display for Asante Kotoko in their intense clash against Hearts of Oak during the ongoing 2023/24 Ghana Premier League season. Lamptey, a former Inter Allies midfielder, once again showcased his creative prowess by initiating attacks with defense-splitting passes. with one of them leading to Isaac Oppong’s crucial goal, helping Kotoko secure a 3-2 victory at the Baba Yara Stadium on Sunday.

Observers and analysts alike have been quick to recognise Lamptey’s unique skill set, emphasising the positive impact he could bring to the Black Stars. With recent concerns about the team’s lack of creativity, especially during periods of injuries to key players like Partey and Ashimeru, Lamptey’s inclusion is seen as a potential remedy.

Ghana are gearing up for the 2023 AFCON, scheduled to take place in Ivory Coast in about a month. Lamptey’s supporters believe that his inclusion in the squad would not only add creativity but also enhance the team’s overall performance. The Black Stars are set to face tough opponents in Group B, including record holders Egypt, Cape Verde, and Mozambique.
