Five Reasons Why Black Stars Will Excel At The Qatar World Cup

The World Cup draw landed Ghana in what can rightly be described as the Group of Death with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal, Luis Suarez’s Uruguay and Heung Min Son’s South Korea. For some Ghanaians and football observers, Ghana stands no chance in such a tough group but there are good reasons to believe Ghana can progress out of this group.

The Black Stars of Ghana
  • Black Stars shine brightest when the odds are against them

Ghana come good in the toughest times and groups (remember 2006?) Czech ranked 2nd or 3rd

People talk about how highly ranked the teams in Ghana’s group are (mention their rankings) but they forget about Ghana’s first appearance at the WC in 2006 and how we found ourselves in a group with Czech who were ranked …. at the time and almighty Italy, who in fact, went on to win the trophy.
Against all odds, Ghana managed to progress after beating the Czechs and the Americans.

  • young , hungry and committed
    The core of the current black stars squad is made up of mainly young and hungry players who are determined to make a name for themselves on the biggest stage and this can only bode well for Ghana. The likes of Djiku, Gideon Mensah, Kudus, Kamaldeen, Kyereh, Partey have all shown great commitment to the black stars and they will be itching to prove to the world that Ghana is a force to be reckoned with in football.
  • new, quality additions
    The new additions to the team in the form of the likes of Tariq Lamptey, Inaki Williams and the very likely possibility of Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah together with Callum Hudson-Odoi joining the black stars will further strengthen a team that has already shown resilience to eliminate a quality Nigerian side
  • capable, brave coach (look at subs and tactics against Nigeria)
    The decision to give ex-Dortmund star, Otto Addo the black stars job paid off in a big way with the tactician leading Ghana to eliminate the Super Eagles of Nigeria to seal qualification for the WC in Qatar. Otto addo’s timely decisions and tactical flexibility was what did the trick for Ghana against Nigeria and this is a very important factor for the Black Stars.
  • Seeking to make up for previous disappointment in 2014 and missing out on last WC

After the disgraceful showing at the WC in 2014 with all the off-field issues and failing to qualify for the next WC in 2018, the WC in Qatar is redemption time for Ghana and team is well aware of this fact. The desire to reclaim Ghana’s good name and prestige on the world stage will serve as great motivation for the team
