The final Black Stars roster for the 2022 FIFA World Cup will be revealed by coach Otto Addo during a live news conference, according to the Ghana Football Association.
On Monday, November 14, 2022, at 11:OO AM, Black Stars coach Otto Addo and his technical staff will make the announcement of the 26 men who will represent Ghana at the World Cup.
There have been numerous rumours in the media concerning certain players who have been left off of the final roster, which has angered the people, prior to the announcement of the final squad.
While Ghanaians are not thrilled about the reported removal of Jeffry Schlupp, Joseph Paintsil, and Felix Afena-Gyan from the final squad, there are other players whose participation in the final roster for the World Cup would come as a great shock to the public.
The following four players’ selections to Ghana’s 26-man World Cup roster will astound Ghanaians:
Lawrence Ati Zigi
The St. Gallen goalkeeper hasn’t been popular with Ghanaians because he hasn’t yet made the most of his chances to keep his position for the Black Stars.
Ati Zigi made his professional debut against Mali in a friendly match in Qatar in 2021, but he was unable to make an impression as the squad fell to a young Malian team 3-0.
When Richard Ofori became injured, Razak Abalora was asked to take over as the team’s number one player for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers, and Ghanaians began demanding that he be removed from the Black Stars.
Ghanaians who may have preferred Danlad Ibrahim or Nurudeen Abdul Manaf over Ati Zigi will be greatly surprised by his selection in the final roster.
was highly anticipated prior to the start of the 2019 AFCON in Egypt, but Samuel Owusu’s performance fell short of Ghanaians’ expectations despite being slightly above average.
His football performance with FK ukariki in the Serbian League since ending his loan with Al Ahli Saudi FC hasn’t significantly improved since 2019. His career hasn’t really advanced since then either.
Ghanaians will be furious if they see Joseph Paintsil in the final 26-man squad on Monday after hearing rumours that the best Ghanaian winger, Joseph Paintsil, has been left out of the team.
The news that Jeffrey Schlup had been cut from the team still has people in shock, and the decision to replace the Crystal Palace midfielder with Mubarak Wakaso in the final squad will anger Ghanaians even more.
Mubarak Wakaso’s participation in the Black Stars from the start of the year has drawn a lot of criticism because of reports that his call-ups in 2022 are not motivated by his ability but rather by his connections to specific individuals on the team.
When in-form players like Schlupp and Ashimeru are dropped, his inclusion in the final roster will reignite the conspiracy theories.
Being selected for the final roster will come as the biggest surprise of all the players on this list due to his selection in the 55-man provisional squad.
Asamoah Gyan was expected to be replaced by Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, but he was unable to live up to the hype since he was not given the opportunity to play when Red Star Belgrade was at its best.
The choice of Richmond Boakye-Yiadom over Felix Afena-Gyan will undoubtedly surprise and enrage Ghanaians.
