FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022: A Quick Look At The Black Stars Group Opponents.

The draw for the FIFA World Cup has just been concluded as Ghana learned which teams they are going to face in the groups stage.So,let us quickly take a look at the teams and the Black Stars' chances of making it to the knockout stages.

Portugal: The Black Stars have been drawn into the same group with CR7's Portugal from pot 1.The Portuguese failed to secure early qualification from their group containing Serbia, Ireland, Luxembourg and Azerbaijan.They however,made it through the playoffs to face Ghana in the final tournament.The last time the two teams met was in the 2014 edition where they defeated the Black Stars but couldn't qualify to the next round.Another tough opponents Ghana will play in their group are Uruguay.They finished 3rd in the CONMEBOL section of the qualifiers on 28 points behind Brazil and Argentina.Time for the Black Stars to have their revenge for that quarter final loss back in 2010.Let's hope Suarez doesn't catch the ball from the goal this time around.

South Korea are also in Ghana's group (Group H) so the Black Stars must prepare adequately for them as there is no "small team" these days.They finished 2nd in their group qualifying campaign behind Iran and ahead of UAE,Iraq,Syria and Lebanon.

So how do you see these teams? Do the Black Stars stand a chance of going beyond the groups stages?Let us know in the comments section.Thanks for reading.
