Coach Otto Addo has today named Ghana’s 26-man final squad for the 2022 World Cup
The Black Stars gaffer selected 55 names as a provisional squad a week ago, but he has picked a strong group with talented players across the first XI and among the reserves.
The squad is also a fine blend of youth and experienced players. High-profile stars such as Andre Ayew, Thomas Party, Kudus Mohammed and Jordan will travel to Qatar together with the newsboys, Inaki Williams, Tariq Lamptey, Salisu Mohammed and two local players, Daniel Afriyie Barnieh and Danlad Ibrahim.
There is a place for
Abdul Baba Rahman, Daniel Amartey and one of the popular choices among Ghana fans Alexander Djiku.
Meanwhile, Addo snubbed in-form Joseph Paintsil, Majeed Ashimeru, Jeffrey Schlupp and Bernard Tekpetey.
As part of the team’s preparation for the tournament, Ghana will play a friendly International against Switzerland on November 17th in Nahyan Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
The 22nd edition of the World Cup starts on November 20th, 2022 to December 18, 2022, in eight cities of Qatar.
