Ghanaian sports minister removed

Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah discusses the overall performance with the African teams that participated in the tournament.

Ghana's president has removed the minister of sports and his deputy from their positions in the wake of the country's poor performance in the 2014 World Cup.

President John Mahama gave no reason for the order, but it comes after Ghana finished bottom of Group G with just one draw to show from three games.

In addition to the Black Stars' poor performance on the pitch, the 23-man squad went on strike over unpaid fees and Sulley Muntari and Kevin-Prince Boateng were sent home for arguing with coach Kwesi Appiah.
