Former President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has blamed the delay in the payment of players appearance fees for a chaotic 2014 FIFA World Cup.
The Black Stars were booted out of the competition at the group stage after failing to win a game and picking only a point against eventual champions, Germany.
Eight years after Ghana left the competition controversially, the ex-GFA boss disclosed the Sports Ministry should be taking most of the blame.

The Black Stars players threatened to boycott the rest of their games after the draw against Germany in the second group game. They had earlier lost to the United States.
Chaos also broke in camp with Sulley Muntari reportedly punching a Black Stars management member.
The melee forced the Sports Ministry to airlift an amount of $4 million to Brazil, which Nyantakyi felt could have been avoided.
