Ghana forward Abdul Majeed Waris believes selection of players into the Black Stars is not based on performance but rather politics.
According to the diminutive striker, coaches do not have a criteria for inviting players into the national set up as top performing players are dropped ahead of tournaments for those struggling to get minutes on the pitch in their respective clubs.
He says this hampers the team's chances of breaking its trophy drought as the best of players are not representing the nation at tournaments.
Waris was named as part of Kwasi Appiah’s provisional 29-man squad for the team’s pre-tournament camp in Dubai.
But after days of camping, Appiah dropped the former Nantes’ striker along with four others.
Also, the 28-year-old has added his voice to Mubarak Wakaso claims that, the nation's big two political parties are among the reasons behind the Black Stars' failure at major international tournaments.
However, disagrees with Wakaso's comment saying, politicians do not play football.
