‘Black Stars can easily make World Cup knockout stages’ – Asamoah Gyan

Former Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, believes Ghana is capable of advancing from the group stage at the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Following their qualification to the tournament to be staged in Qatar next month, Otto Addo and his side have been drawn in Group H where they face Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay, with making suggesting it could an early exit for the Black Stars once again.

However, Gyan, who has played in all previous tournaments where Ghana has qualified, is certain the team can easily book a knockout phase spot.

“We can qualify from our group with ease,” he told Kumasi-based Kessben FM.

“In 2006, we were the underdogs and coming up against the Czech Republic and Italy, they did not give us the chance but we went there and we performed. In 2010, the same things happened. We went there and lift the flag of Ghana high by playing in the quarterfinals which was an improvement.

“Before you can win the World Cup, you need to qualify from your group which is possible so I believe that these players can do that.

“The players must believe that they can do it and that it is possible,” he added.

The Black Stars will be making a return to the Mundial after missing out on the last edition in 2018.
