"Coach Akonnor will name Ghana’s squad for next month’s FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa.
"Ghana are scheduled to host Group G opponents Ethiopia on Friday, September 3 in Cape Coast, before playing South Africa on Monday, September 6, 2021 in Johannesburg respectively."

Ghana missed out on the FIFA World Cup in 2018, after losing to Egypt in the final round of qualifiers.

The team is poised on making a return to the global stage, having drawn a plan which includes playing some high profile friendlies and making sure the team is well catered for.

The four times African champions first qualified for the World Cup in 2006, and impressed in their debut tournament, reach the round of 16 in Germany, only to be kicked out by Brazil.

Four years later in South Africa, Ghana held the forth for Africa by reaching the quarter finals, only to be denied a place in the last four by a Luis Suarez handball and the lottery of spot kicks.

It went from good to bad in 2014, after the team exited the group stages in dramatic circumstances, when players refused to train over unpaid bonuses.

Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that, Al Sadd manager, Xavi Hernandez, is full of praise for Ghana captain Andre Ayew, after he netted his first goal for the Qatari giants in a pre-season friendly.

The 31-year-old opened his Al Sadd account, after netting the opener in the 5-3 thumping of Spanish lower tier side Figueres.

Xavi, who spoke after the friendly to the club's website, revealed that Ayew's signing will be enough for the team ahead of the start of the Stars League.
