Despite being the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, Ghana has an excellent World Cup 2022 squad. The Black Stars have recruited some excellent talent since qualifying for the tournament.
A number of high profile international players have switched allegiance to the country. The squad includes three young Ghanaian footballers who all hope to make their World Cup debut.
Mohammed Salisu has joined the Black Stars and is likely to feature in the group stage. Salisu is a powerful centre-back who plays in the Premier League. He scored his first international goal against Brazil in September. He will face Luis Suarez and Cristiano Ronaldo in the group stage.
The team will be boosted by the win over Switzerland. The Black Stars will also face South Korea on November 28. Ghana have not been able to get to the knockout stages in the World Cup. However, they have won three of their last five games. They will hope to beat Uruguay in the group stage.
The squad also includes four players who made their international debuts this year. Inaki Williams plays for Athletic Bilbao, while Gideon Mensah plays for Auxerre. Inaki Williams made his international debut in friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua.
Mohammed Kudus is a rising star. He can play as an attacking midfielder or striker. He is a well-balanced player with a strong left foot. He has a quick movement away from opponents when he is fed the ball.
The team is also bolstered by a number of big name European clubs. Arsenal’s Thomas Partey is key. Leicester City’s Daniel Amartey is also in the squad.
