The 2022 FIFA World Cup is about to begin, and excitement in our country is already high because Ghana will be participating.
Ghana did not qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but they are returning to add to their long history in the competition. They’ve been to the World Cup three times (2006, 2010, and 2014), and each time they’ve delivered spectacular performances.
2006 FIFA World Cup
Ghana was the only African team to qualify for the World Cup’s second round in 2006. They were also the edition’s youngest team, with an average age of 23 years and 352 days. FIFA praised the team’s performance and placed them 13th out of the 32 countries that competed in the tournament.
The Black Stars performed even better in the 2010 edition, reaching the World Cup quarterfinals. They appeared to be on the verge of going even further when they were defeated on penalties by Uruguay. Following their outstanding performance, FIFA ranked Ghana seventh in that competition.
Ghana did not fare well in the 2014 edition, as they were eliminated in the group stage after losses to Portugal and the United States. They did, however, deliver a spirited performance against Germany, tying the match 2-2.
Ghana did not qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia, but they are now ready to compete in Qatar. And the squad they’ve assembled for the mega event gives their fans much hope.
This time around, the squad contains some genuine talent from renowned clubs all over the world, as well as a good mix of youth and experience. The most well-known player on the roster is Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey. Still, Tariq Lamptey of Brighton, Inaki Williams of Athletic Bilbao, Jordan Ayew of Crystal Palace, Daniel Amartey of Leicester, and Mohammed Salisu of Southampton are also notable.

All of these players have repeatedly demonstrated their talent and potential in various leagues around the world. They will now attempt to replicate their success on the biggest stage of international football. Ghana has been assigned to Group H, which includes strong teams such as South Korea, Portugal, and Uruguay. However, their squad’s talent and potential are capable of handling the caliber of these teams. Ghana will be eager to exact vengeance on Uruguay, which eliminated them from the tournament in 2010. As a result, the Black Stars will be naturally motivated to win this tournament.
