Ghana won't shut door on experienced players
Ghana captain John Mensah still key to the team's campaign
Former Ghana FA chairman Nyaho Tamakloe suggested new coach Kwesi Appiah sacked the old faces in the team and concentrated on building a youthful team.
He specifically mentioned players like Michael Essien, John Pantsil, Derek Boateng and Sulley Muntari should be axed from the team.
But the Football Association has discounted his suggestion and says the services of the old faces will be needed.
"We disagree with Nyaho Tamakloe. We won't drop our experienced players just because they are experienced," Ghana FA spokesperson Ibrahim Sannie-Daara told Happy FM.
"We will not shut the door on any Ghanaian player anywhere in the world who is playing well and is the best for the country.
"Some of these players are the best players the country has and they are playing very well for top clubs in Europe.
"If they are playing very well and regularly for their clubs surely the coach will consider them for selection.
"If some of these players are inactive as you saw in the last qualifiers - the coach will take the necessary action.
"But to say we should leave them out just because they are experienced even when they are playing very well would be counterproductive."
Ghana's next assignment will be against Malawi in September in a final 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.
