Three Points Will Push us to Win The Remaining Games - Baba Rahman

There is nothing more refreshing than regaining your position at national real level especially after grappling with injuries for a very long time in your career.

We are about to take a look at a footballer whose career should have spiraled to the highest level than it is today and that is Black Stars left-back, Baba Abdul Rahman. He started his football career from Tamale before moving down South to the capital, Accra to continue his career with Dreams FC before joining premier league side, Asante Kotoko on loan. Baba Rahman then moved to Germany to have stints with Greuther Fürth and Augsburg in the Bundesliga before joining Chelsea on a long term deal where his move did not go as expected.

Baba Raman’s stay at Chelsea will be short lived as he will go on loan to several clubs due to failure to command a regular shirt at the Blues. His first loan move was back in Germany with Schalke 04 which he will go on to have two loan stints with. He returned to Chelsea and was subsequently sent to Reims in France for another loan move where he will have arguably one of the best outings among his loan moves. He has also played on loan with RCD Mallorca in Spain and Greek club, PAOK Saloniki. He has now gone on loan to English Championship side, Reading fc. In all these moves injuries played a part in hampering his chances of blossoming as many would expect and he missed a lot of games for the Ghana senior national team, the Black Stars.

However he has made an injury return and playing extremely well for the Black Stars. He was very instrumental in the Black Stars’ double header win over Zimbabwe in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier on home and away respectively. He played full time in the Black Stars 3-1 win in the first leg at the Cape Coast Stadium and the 1-0 win at the National Stadium in Harare. He was elated at the Black Stars 1-0 win over Zimbabwe in Harare. He tweeted to that effect.

The Black Stars of Ghana now have nine points in second on Group G with South Africa in first on 10 points. Ethiopia are third with three points and Zimbabwe at the bottom of the table with just a point. The Black Stars will play Ethiopia away on October 11 before finishing the qualifier against South Africa at home on October 17.

The Black Stars of Ghana have played in three consecutive World Cups. First in 2006 in Germany where they reached the last 16 before an improved performance in 2010 in South Africa where they were eliminated in the quarter finals through the penalty shootouts against Uruguay. The third edition in Brazil 2014 was bad as they were eliminated in the group stage after just a 2-2 draw with Germany and 2-1 defeats to USA and Portugal in the opening and third game. They missed out on the 2018 edition held in Russia.
