Everything is on course ahead of World Cup opener against Portugual – GFA Spokesperson

Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Henry Asante Twum says the Black Stars are ready for their 2022 World Cup opener against Portugal on Thursday.

Black Stars, who are the lowest-ranked team at the tournament have been drawn in Group H alongside Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay.

Ghana will take on Portugal in their first game on November 24 before playing South Korea and Uruguay on November 28 and December 2 respectively.

According to Asante Twum, the friendly win over Switzerland in Abu Dhabi last Thursday has raised morale in camp.

“Everything is on course, we do not have any cause for alarm. All the players are in good condition; all of them are fully fit,” he said in an interview on The Probe on Sunday.

“They have been training since we started camping and I can say that based on what I’ve seen, we have 3 more days to continue our preparations for the first game against Portugal, and we will be very ready for that encounter”, he noted.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup takes place between November 20 and December 18, 2022.

Only three sides from the continent have ever progressed to the quarter-finals; Cameroon in 1990, Senegal in 2002, and Ghana in 2010.

Ghana will be hoping to progress from the group stage at this year’s tournament.
