Ghana qualify for 2022 World Cup in Qatar

Ghana have qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar after a spirited display against Nigeria on Tuesday resulted in a 1-1 draw in Abuja.

With the first leg ending 0-0 in Kumasi, Ghana knew a score draw would be enough to secure their place in Qatar.

In front of a big crowd at Moshood Abiola Stadium, Thomas Partey scored the crucial away goal in the 10th minute to upset the Super Eagles.

The lead, however, lasted for 12 minutes as Nigeria equalised courtesy of a disputed penalty scored by William Troost-Ekong.

Ghana defended well after, to qualify for a fourth World Cup finals.

After failing to qualify for the 2018 edition in Russia, the Black Stars have returned to the global showpiece.

Ghana had previously qualified for three consecutive World Cups between 2006 and 2014.

Ghana’s finest World Cup performance came in 2010 when the squad made it to the quarterfinals.

They will attempt to break that record in November when they travel to Qatar.
