Breaking News: Genk forward Joseph Paintsil dropped from Ghana’s squad .

Genk forward, Joseph Paintsil, has been dropped from the Black Stars’ final 26-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup ahead of Otto Addo’s announcement according to reports.

Paintsil made the 55-man preliminary squad which was announced on Friday, November 2, but it has been confirmed that the Genk forward will not be part of the team.

The 24-year-old attacker has had a bright start to the 2022/23 season, bagging six league goals and providing five assists in 13 games.

The pacy winger was hoping to make the Black Stars team for the Mundial but has his hopes now dashed after being left out of the squad.

The decision is said to have been communicated to the player by Otto Addo, who is expected to name his list later this week according to MyJoyOnline.

He was part of Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations squad in Cameroon earlier this year while he was also called up for the World Cup playoff tie against Nigeria in March.
