Road to Qatar 2022: Can Ghana make amends?

After a disastrous campaign in the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, the Black Stars of Ghana have been handed an image redemption opportunity as they renew rivalry with the Nigeria Super Eagles for a ticket to the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup.

The draw for the third and final round of the African qualifying for Qatar 2022 has paired West African rivals Ghana and Nigeria and while the Super Eagles have enjoyed a good form in the 2021 AFCON, their Ghanaian counterparts were disgraced by lowly Comoros Island as the Black Stars failed to win a single game in the competition.

Once a formidable force in Africa, the Black Stars have become a laughing stock in their own country as many Ghanaians have subjected them to ridicule, but the Stars stand a good chance of winning their fans back if they are able to snatch the ticket to Qatar from the jaws of the Super Eagles come this March.

In most cases, games between Ghana and Nigeria do not follow any form guide and this will surely spur on the Black Stars to make amends and book one of the five tickets reserved for Africa in the biggest global soccer showpiece.

The Black Stars are chasing a fourth FIFA World Cup appearance while the Super Eagles attempt to make their seventh appearance in the tournament.

Other fixtures of the final round will see Liverpool teammates and two of the best footballers in Africa, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane clash as Egypt and Senegal do battle for one of the five coveted tickets to Qatar. Cameroon will do battle with Algeria while DR Congo face Morocco. Mali have not appeared at the World Cup before and this will be enough motivation for them when they play Tunisia for the ticket.

The play-off games will be played between March 24 and 29, 2022.
