Black Stars 27-man Team
On March 22, 2022, Black Stars coach, Otto Addo, announced a 27-man team for the 2022 World Cup play-off. The squad unsurprisingly has usual players such as Thomas Partey, Daniel Amartey, Alexander Djiku, Daniel Kofi Kyereh. The team has four goalkeepers, nine defenders, six midfielders, four wingers, and four strikers. There are also some new faces with Dennis Odoi and Felix Afena-Gyan leading pack.
Meanwhile, Ghanaians on social media have complained about Jordan Ayew’s call-up to the Black Stars squad for the World Cup playoff. Many cannot comprehend why the striker has been included in the 27-man squad, despite reports of him testing positive for COVID-19 few days ago. Others also argued that the player is not in good form and therefore does not merit a call-up. However, new reports indicate that Jordan Ayew tested negative for COVID-19
