This crop of Black Stars players are ‘the best’ – Baba Rahman

On-loan Chelsea defender Abdul Baba Rahman has hailed coach Otto Addo for assembling the best crop of players ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. 

According to the 28-year-old, the current Black Stars players are the best since he joined the national team.

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

“I think since like a year now Technical team has put together young talents and they are really helping a lot and I’m loving the competition we have now in the national team, so year it’s ben great,” Rahman told Nizaar Kinsella in an interview.

“I think, we’ve got the likes of Inaki Williams in the team now and they’ve come to improve the team but I mean this is a crop of group that still needs to grow up with each other to be able to understand each other but I thin since I’ve been in the national team, maybe this crop of players have been the best crop, talent wise, we’ve had.”

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.

Ghana secured a 4th FIFA World Cup tournament having participated in 2006, 2010, and 2014 in Germany, South Africa, and Brazil after drawing 1-1 against Nigeria in the return leg of the final play-offs at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja to seal qualification on the away goals rule.

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.
