Ghana, one of the five African representatives at the FIFA 2022 World Cup, look primed for an exciting tournament despite being drawn into an incredibly difficult group.
Having failed to reach the 2018 World Cup, the Black Stars, led by former international player Otto Addo, now boast a significant wealth of young talent. However, there’s been a fair few challenges along the way as well.
Addo was only appointed earlier this year after the national team made a managerial change in the wake of a disappointing showing at the Africa Cup of Nations. In a turnaround, the new boss helped lead the side to World Cup qualification just two months later, eliminating African powers Nigeria on away goals in a 1-1 aggregate playoff draw.
Now, the climb is steep as they take on Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea in the group stage in Qatar.
