WAFU B wishes Ghana best of luck ahead of World Cup opener against Portugal on Thursday

The West African Football Union (WAFU Zone B) has sent goodwill message to Ghana and the rest of the African representatives ahead of their respective kick off at the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 finals.

Cameroon, Morocco, Senegal, Tunisia and Ghana will represent Africa at this year’s global showpiece.

All five have appeared at football’s biggest event previously. Cameroon, Morocco and Senegal made it to the last-eight of the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year.

In a letter to the five countries, Ghana Football Association President Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku mentioned that the entire continent is behind them and also wished them all the best in the global showpiece which kicked off on Sunday with hosts Qatar losing 2-0 to Ecuador.

The letter to all the five African countries reads, “On the eve of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, the Management of WAFU Zone B, through its President Mr Kurt Simeon Okraku wishes good luck to all African teams, namely Morocco, Cameroon, Senegal, Tunisia and Ghana representing Zone B, engaged in this competition.”

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.

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.
