Ghana World Cup Squad 2022 are one of the most successful nations on the African football circuit, with four AFCON trophies in their trophy cabinet. The Black Stars reached the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup in 2010. They will look to replicate that success this term.
Coach Otto Addo has recently announced his 26-men squad for the tournament. The African nation will kick-start their campaign in Group H, alongside Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea.
Ghana world cup squad 2022 is as follows:
Goalkeepers: Lawrence Ati-Zigi (St Gallen), Danlad Ibrahim (Asante Kotoko), Manaf Nurudeen (Eupen)
Otto Addo has included 19-year-old Danlad Ibrahim in his final squad after his impressive performances for the First Capital Plus Premier League club Asante Kotoko. He will compete with Lawrence Ati-Zigi and Manaf Nurudeen to keep gloves for the Black Stars in Qatar World Cup 2022.
Defenders: Joseph Aidoo (Celta Vigo), Daniel Amartey (Leicester City), Abdul-Rahman Baba (Reading), Alexander Djiku (Racing Strasbourg), Tariq Lamptey (Brighton & Hove Albion), Gideon Mensah (AJ Auxerre), Denis Odoi (Club Brugge), Mohammed Salisu (Southampton) and Alidu Seidu (Clermont Foot).
Daniel Amartey, Tariq Lamptey, and Mohamed Salisu are all key members of their respective Premier League clubs. They will have a massive responsibility to shield Ghana’s goal during the tournament.
Midfielders: Andre Ayew (Al Sadd), Mohammed Kudus (Ajax Amsterdam), Daniel-Kofi Kyereh (SC Freiburg), Elisha Owusu (Gent), Thomas Partey (Arsenal), and Salis Abdul Samed (Racing Lens).

Thomas Partey: The 29-year-old midfielder has been Arsenal’s star performer this season. He has played 11 Premier League games this season, scoring two goals.
Inaki Williams: Athletic Bilbao’s attacker changed his international allegiance to play for Ghana earlier this year. He is expected to spreadhead the Black Stars attack in Qatar.
