GHANA Squad FIFA World Cup 2022

This is the fourth time Ghana have qualified for the World Cup, which was a much needed boost after their failure in the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year. Head coach Addo has an abundance of youth to call upon though their relative inexperience could hamper their chances especially during the knockout stages of the competition.

Ghana will be present in Qatar following a valiant effort in the qualifying rounds, cementing a place in the tournament for the first time since 2014 by beating Nigeria on away goals in the African playoffs. The Black Stars went so close to reaching the semifinals of the World Cup in 2010, losing on penalties to Uruguay in the last eight.

Despite not having as many household names in the current squad compared to the 2010 and 2014 editions, players such as Atl. Bilbao striker Williams, Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey and young Ajax talent Mohammed Kudus will both be stars to keep an eye on as the tournament gets underway.

Grit and determination are two qualities that are instilled into the fabric of this Ghana side, who lost just two of their 10 fixtures in 2021, but a poor Africa Cup of Nations campaign — in which they exited at the group stage without a win — means there is a point to prove back on the major stage.
