As part of the FIFA World Cup 2022, the Ghanaian team will be making its fourth appearance in the tournament. There will be a match between Ghana and Portugal in their first match of the tournament, which will take place on November 24, 2022, at Stadium 974 in Doha, Qatar. Aside from Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea, Ghana is placed in Group H of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, along with Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea.
It is expected that the Ghana World Cup 2022 squad will be named in October of this year. As the winner of the qualification play-offs in Africa, Otto Addo’s side booked their place at the national championship by defeating Nigeria, beating a group consisting of South Africa, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe in the process.
Ghana will be making its fourth appearance at the World Cup this year. This is the first time the Black Stars have appeared in the World Cup since 2006 when they reached the round of 16. As a member of the team, Ghana made it to the quarterfinals of the 2010 edition, just missing out on the last four by a whisker.

How many players are Ghana allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?
As a special measure brought into effect because of the COVID-19 pandemic, national managers were allowed to bring 26 players to last summer’s European Championship for the first time at a major tournament.
A 26-player squad has now been announced for the Qatar World Cup, which is an increase from the usual 23-man squads that have been used in the past.
When will the final Ghana Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?
There will be a World Cup in 2022 that will take place between November and December. As a result of the extreme temperatures in Qatar in the middle of the year, it was decided to move the tournament from its usual time slot in June and July.
There is a deadline of October 20 – 30 days before the first match between Senegal and the Netherlands – for national team managers to announce their squads. The majority of countries will choose preliminary squads before narrowing down their traveling parties to 23 (or 26) names in time to meet the deadline for the selection of the traveling parties.
Who will make the final Ghana 2022 World Cup squad?
The veteran striker Andre Ayew missed the play-off against Nigeria because he was suspended, but he will be part of the squad for the Qatar match. If Jordan is able to travel over, he will also be guaranteed a place on the plane, which he has enjoyed a successful season for Crystal Palace.
After not playing at the Africa Cup of Nations, Jeff Sclupp faces an uncertain future at Selhurst Park alongside the younger of the Ayew siblings.
The Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey may be Ghana’s key player at the World Cup. At 28, he is theoretically at the peak of his abilities as a player and has impressed with his performances for the Gunners this season.
One to watch is Benfica’s Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, a teenage forward.
