The world cup playoff tie that seized Ghanaians by vague of terror, as to whether the Black Stars of Ghana qualifies to the Qatar 2022 World Cup or forfeit a ticket to such an international competition, had finally vindicated Ghana after they shrugged off the home advantage fears in Lagos to overcome Nigeria.
If we as a nation could recall the playoff draw that took place some weeks ago which saw the pairing of Ghana to Nigeria, it was clear and undoubtedly gruesome on the part of Ghana to secure qualification at the expense of Nigeria but after the hurdles Ghana has secured the qualification to Qatar
After a disappointment at the AFCON 2022 under Milovan Rajevac and Maxwell Konadu, the Otto Addo and Houghton led football administration have turned things around with an impressive away goal advantage that propelled the Black Stars of Ghana to bypass Nigeria to the World Cup.
Prior to the world cup, a lot of players would be willing to go with the Black Stars haven seen the qualification route to Qatar 2022, but the parameters must be set by the Ghana Football Association and the coaches.
The player selection must be based on quality and those loyal players who helped the country to book their qualification to Qatar 2022. They should be polished and reconsidered rather than players who turned their back at Ghana when we needed them for the AFCON and the World Cup qualification.
Players like Mohammed Salisu, Callum Hudson Odoi, Tariq Lamptey and other stars in the diaspora must not be allowed to play in Qatar with the Ghana Black Stars team for looking down upon the nation
Ghana joined most of the teams that have already secured qualification to Qatar 2022 including Senegal, Morocco, Cameroon, Tunisia, Portugal, Spain, France, Germany and many others.
This is the fourth time Ghana is entering into a world cup competition tracing back from Germany 2006, South Africa 2010, Brazil 2014 and now Qatar 2022 thanks for the Thomas Pastry's powerful goal that left the Nigerians in awe.
