Ghana’s Black Stars will compete in the Qatar 2022 World Cup. The Stars performed admirably in their two playoff matches against Nigeria, earning them a spot on the world stage. All teams competing in the world cup are required to name their squads 20 or 30 days prior to the tournament’s opening game. Ghana will be hoping to announce the players who would participate in the early preparations. Otto Addo’s postseason roster comprised the following:
GK: Richard Ofori (Orlando Pirates), GK: Lawrence Ati-Zigi (St Gallen), GK: Joe Wollacott (Swindon), GK: Abdul Manaf Nurudeen (Eupen), DF: Andy Yiadom (Reading), DF: Denis Odoi (Club Brugge), DF: Montari Kamaheni (Ashdod), DF: Joseph Aidoo (Celta Vig (Hearts of Oak), Thomas Partey (Arsenal), Daniel-Kofi Kyereh (St Pauli), Elisha Owusu (Gent), Osman Bukari (Nantes), Joseph Paintsil (Genk), Yaw Yeboah (Columbus Crew), Mohammed Kudus (Ajax), Iddrisu Baba (Real Mallorca), Edmund Addo (Columbus Crew) (Sheriff Tiraspol), Abdul Fatawu Issahaku (Sporting CP); Jordan Ayew (Crystal Palace); Felix Afena-Gyan (Roma); Kwasi Okyere Wriedt (Holstein Kiel); Christopher Antwi-Adjei (Holstein Kiel) (Bochum)
There are anticipation that this squad will undergo a number of changes. The final roster is expected to include captain Andre Dede Ayew, Kamaaldeen Sulemana, Jeffery Schlupp, and Salisu Mohammed, among others. Ghana is anticipating several players making the transfer to the national squad. Hudson Odoi, Nico Williams and his brother Inaki Williams, Eddie Nketiah, and Tariq Lamptey are just a few of these guys. If these players succeed, the team will be formidable.
If FIFA does not expand the number of players eligible for the world cup, some names will be omitted from the ones given out during the playoffs, which will be a sad day for those impacted. May the finest possible proposal be made for Qatar 2022.
