Despite being omitted from Ghana’s squad for the 2022 World Cup, Paintsil has been making a strong case for himself on the field.
Not only does he have 10 goals, but he has also contributed 10 assists. He is currently one of Ghana’s top performers abroad and is expected to receive a call-up for the national team’s upcoming qualifiers in March.
