Ghana announces 26-man squad for 2022 FIFA World Cup
The nation have been drawn to Group H
Ghana’s new head coach, Otto Addo, has named his 26-man squad for the World Cup in 2022. Ghana struggled to qualify for the 2018 World Cup after a string of dismal performances that ended their chances.
However, they would have fallen short of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup if new manager Otto Addo had not taken over and forced a discouraged team to a 1-1 draw with Nigeria, and will have a case to settle in Qatar.
Ghana had its best World Cup run in 2010, reaching the quarter-finals before succumbing to Uruguay in the most contentious match in FIFA World Cup history.
With Portugal and Uruguay as favourites to advance, Ghana may have a legitimate chance to demonstrate their credentials. On November 24, the Black stars will face Portugal in their first FIFA World Cup match.
