World Cup draw: Ghana set to discover opponents on Friday

Ghana will know their 2022 FIFA World Cup group opponents on Friday, April 1, when the draw is held in Qatar.

The draw is set to take place at 16:00 GMT in Doha.

Black Stars are among a total of 32 teams that will travel to Qatar for the tournament, which gets underway in November this year.

They secured qualification on Tuesday in Abuja after a 1-1 draw with Nigeria to qualify on the away goals rule.

Ghana will be hoping for a favourable group after being handed a difficult one in their previous appearance. In Brazil 2014, they faced eventual winners Germany, Portugal, and the United States.

Ghana did not qualify for the 2018 edition staged in Russia.

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.
