2022 World Cup: Ghana can do well in Qatar – Fred Pappoe

Former Ghana Football Association Executive Council member Fred Pappoe believes the Black Stars can excel at the upcoming World Cup.

Pappoe has backed the team to disprove the doubters in Qatar, where they will face Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay in the group stage.

Given their recent form, Ghana are the least likely of the four teams in Group H to advance.

In their last four matches, the Black Stars have only won once, against Nicaragua.

They were beaten by Brazil last month. Before that, they lost heavily to Japan and drew with Chile in the Kirin Cup.

“Ghana can perform well at the World Cup. It’s all about preparations and so far with the friendlies Ghana have played the coaches must be in a position to do a proper evaluation.” Pappoe, who contested the 2019 GFA presidential elections, said on Akoma FM.

He also emphasized that Black Stars coach Otto Addo must get things right.

“It’s possible and I’m very hopeful that we can do well, and the coaches should be able to identify areas, where they think, must be strengthened, it could be new call-ups or getting other friendly games to correct the mistakes they have identified. It is not going to be easy, it takes hard work.”

“Looking at the precious groups that we progress with ie 2006 and 2010, surely we can repeat the same performance this time by having the right focus, atmosphere, and support from all Ghanaians,  I believe we can progress.”

Ghana’s first match is against Portugal, followed by a match against South Korea before the much-anticipated match against Uruguay.
