After having certified for the World Cup thrice in a row, the Black Stars didn’t qualify for Russia 2018, having been eradicated by group winners, Egypt.
How can we consider Ghana’s probabilities of qualifying for Qatar 2022, some 9 months earlier than the beginning of the qualifying event?
After having loved a bye within the first spherical, Ghana have been drawn in group along with South Africa, Zimbabwe and Ethiopia. The winner of this group will likely be drawn in opposition to one other group winner for a home-and-away play-off tie, with the 5 play-off winners changing into Africa’s representatives within the 2022 World Cup.
Ghana is a agency favorite to win their group and advance to the play-off stage, with South Africa being the almost certainly challenger.
How Ghana would fare in a possible play-off relies upon to a big diploma on who the opponent can be.
Ghana was nicknamed “the Brazil of Africa” by Marcela Mora y Araujo through the 2006 World Cup.
Contemplating the extent of high quality within the present Black Stars outfit, this isn’t an unapt sobriquet.
Thomas Teye Partey who through the summer time has been linked time and time once more with a transfer to Arsenal from Atletico Madrid, was revealed to be the midfielder with the best dribbling success rate among Europe’s top five leagues. It is a splendid instance of the immense high quality of the present Ghana group.
Lately it appears the good cash is on Partey making the transfer to Emirates, as a pointy tipster on arguably the best free betting tips platform, made a tip indicating that Partey becoming a member of Arsenal is a worth proposition even at odds-on.
Partey is nonetheless removed from the one high quality participant with a Ghanaian passport. The Ghana captain Dede Ayew, his brother the Crystal Palace ahead Jordan Ayew, the massively gifted Osman Bukari and Mohammed Kudus who was signed by Ajax a couple of months in the past are gamers who might make most opposing nationwide group managers grow to be greater than a bit uneasy.
Nevertheless, contemplating that Brazil’s spell of success began already on the 1958 World Cup and likewise their string of 5 World Cup successes, I assume we now have to conclude that the moniker of the “Brazil of Africa” is a little bit of a stretch.
Even so we expect Ghana has greater than a combating probability of constructing it to the 2022 World Cup and we want the Black Stars each attainable form of success.
