After being excluded from the Russian World Cup, Ghana will want to dominate the 2022 tournament. Otto Addo, the new coach, took charge of the national team’s qualifying run. He led the team to victory when they held Nigeria to a 1-1 draw in the last round to earn their spot in the Qatar world cup.
They had previously participated in the competition’s 2006, 2010, and 2014 seasons. Ghana’s highest World Cup result to date was a quarterfinal showing in the 2010 world cup when Uruguay lost him with a bitter penalty shootout.
At the group stage in 2014, Portugal and Ghana played each another. Unfortunately, Ghana could not move to the round of 16, as Portugal won the final group game 2-1. This time, Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea are their opponents in Group G, and they will hope they have a chance to go to the elimination rounds.
Here, we have discussed those players who will play in the world cup 2022. Let’s check which players are:
Ghana Squad For World Cup 2022
Although he believes that Abdul Issahaku and Felix Afena-Gyan will join the attack, Jordan Ayew has a chance to be added to the national team. Inaki Williams is also another option for Ghana after earlier this year indicating his availability to participate.
|Osman Bukari||Red Star Belgrade|
|Antoine Semenyo||Bristol City|
|Inaki Williams||Athletic Bilbao|
|Jordan Ayew||Crystal Palace|
Daniel Amartey, Alexander Djiku, and Mohammed Salisu will all be looking to play defense for Ghana at the World Cup. After the announcement that he will represent Ghana on the world stage, Tariq Lamptey of Brighton could also push for selection. However, Addo’s preferred choice will also be Abdul Rahman Baba.
|Denis Odoi||Club Brugge|
|Daniel Amartey||Leicester City|
|Joseph Aidoo||Celta Vigo|

Mohammed Kudus, Thomas Partey, and Andre Ayew are Addo’s three most influential midfielders. Fiorentina’s Alfred Duncan hasn’t played as regularly for Ghana since.
|Augustine Okrah||Bechem United|
|Andre Ayew||Al Sadd|
|Yaw Yeboah||Columbus Crew|
A four-person defense consisting of Lamptey, Djiku, Amartey, and Rahman Baba might defend Wollacott.
Thomas Partey will probably cover the defense as Andre Ayew and Kudus play more attacking center mids. Williams will play top, with Sulemana & Jordan Ayew on the wings.
Wollacott; Lamptey, Djiku, Amartey, Rahman Baba; Partey; Sulemana, A. Ayew, Kudus, J. Ayew; Williams make up Ghana’s starting lineup (4-1-4-1).
Can Ghana Replace Any Player in the Final Squad?
Only before the World Cup opening match, and then only under highly unusual circumstances, can participating teams make changes to the final 26-man roster.
According to the tournament’s official rules, a player on the final list may only be replaced in the event of a significant illness or injury up to 24 hours before the start of his team’s first match.
