Ghana’s Deputy Minister for Youth and Sports Hon. Evans Opoku Bobie has said the Black Stars are likely to receive a psychological talk ahead of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar which begins in twenty-five days.
According to the Asunafo-North Member of Parliament, the lack of experience in the squad in terms of world appearance for the players is something that needs to be looked at with the Ayew brothers being the only players to have tasted matches at the world cup level, Ghana will need some serious fire power to excel at Qatar.
‘’ We need to prepare well for the world cup. Our team according to FIFA is the lowest-ranked team going into the competition. I think our guys need to be prepared psychological and mentally”
‘’ Aside Andrew and his brother Jordan who have played at the world cup finals before, most of the players will be attending for the first time and we do a lot in terms of preparations. Honestly, Government is committed to supporting the national teams.”
Ghana’s ride to the FIFA World Cup quarterfinals in 2010, remains one of the greatest performances in the continent’s sporting history. African teams have reached the World Cup quarterfinals only three times, and no team has gotten closer to the final four than the Black stars of Ghana, who were eliminated on penalties by Uruguay after a 1-1 draw and on a controversial night in Johannesburg.
The Black Stars of Ghana will be looking forward to an amazing World Cup campaign in Qatar later this year after failing to show up for Russia 2018 showpiece. Ghana has been drawn into Group H alongside Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea.
