The Black Stars of Ghana have qualified to the next phase of the FIFA world cup qualifiers after beating the Bafana Bafana of South Africa by a goal. They looked very blunt on the offensive end, missing over 2 clear chances in the game.
But black stars captain Andrew Dede Ayew gave them a lifeline after scoring from a spot-kick in the 33rd minute.
Bafana Bafana came in very strong in the second half but couldn't find the net, as the black stars cruised to victory.
The black stars failed to make it to the 2018 FIFA world cup after continuous disappointing performances.
But as things stand now they have a chance to make it to the 2022 FIFA world cup this time around.
They will compete with one of the remaining 9 teams who also qualified to the next phase of the competition. The 9 teams consist of Senegal, Algeria, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Morroco, Mali, Tunisia, Egypt, and Cameroon.
The black stars have to defeat one of these teams on aggregate to book their spot in the 2022 FIFA world cup in Qatar. The matches are scheduled to be played in March 2022.
If the Black stars keep playing poorly like this, might cost them again to miss the FIFA world cup.
This performance is a wake-up call for them to improve, especially to their new head coach Milovan Rajevac and some old players like Jordan Ayew. They have to do more to have a chance to book a ticket to Qatar in 2022.
