Mustapha Ussif, the minister of youth and sports, expresses his confidence that the Black Stars will win the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
Ghana has returned to the international competition after missing the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The Black Stars earned a 1-1 draw at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja to go to the World Cup after a 0-0 tie in the first leg of the playoffs at the Baba Yara Stadium.
Mustapha Ussif reaffirmed his belief that the Black Stars will triumph, citing the nation’s finest results, which included a quarterfinal appearance in South Africa in 2010 and a group-stage exit in Brazil in 2014.
“As football powerhouse in Africa, I know the Black Stars will bring the World Cup trophy back to Ghana by winning it Qatar,” he said at the World Cup trophy tour in Accra.
The 24th of November will see Ghana’s opening game against Portugal at Stadium 974 in Doha. Ghana is in Group H.
The Black Stars are back in action four days later when they play South Korea at Al Rayyan’s Education City Stadium.
At Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah, Ghana’s much awaited match against Uruguay will conclude the group stage.
The World Cup is set to begin on November 20 and go until December 18.
