World Cup 2022: Otto Addo to defend Black Stars final 26-man squad for tournament on Monday

Executive Council member of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Dr. Randy Abbey has hinted that Otto Addo will defend his final 26-man for the 2022 World Cup.

Addo, who masterminded Ghana’s qualification to the Mundial will on Monday announce his final 26-man squad for the tournament.

Speaking on Metro TV, Dr. Abbey said the coach will hold a press conference and announce the squad while explaining his choices.

“I am a member of the Executive Council but I’m not aware of the final list. When they are ready, they will tell us and they will let us know. The Ghana camp opens on the 14th but I think they will be a press conference by Otto Addo in Ghana,” he said.

Per the GFA’s itinerary, all players and technical team members are expected to report on November 14, which is the deadline set for National teams to announce their final squad for the tournament.

Ghana will open camp in Abu Dhabi and will take on Switzerland on November 17 before flying to Doha for the tournament on November 19.

Ghana will open their campaign against Portugal on November 24 at Stadium 974 in Doha.

Four days later, the Black Stars return to action with a clash with South Korea at the Education City Stadium in Al Rayyan.

Ghana will wrap up their group stage adventure with their much-anticipated encounter with Uruguay at Al Janoub Stadium in Al Wakrah.

The Black Stars having missed out in the last edition hosted in Russia in 2018 will be hoping to improve their performance in Qatar after exiting the group phase during the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
