Ghana has qualified for the World Cup in Qatar in 2022

After a valiant showing against Nigeria on Tuesday that ended in a 1-1 draw in Abuja, Ghana has qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

 

Ghana understood that a score draw would be enough to earn their berth in Qatar after the first leg ended 0-0 in Kumasi.

 

Thomas Partey scored the game-winning away goal in the 10th minute in front of a raucous crowd at Moshood Abiola Stadium to stun the Super Eagles.

 

The lead, however, only lasted 12 minutes when Nigeria equalized via to a controversial penalty kick by William Troost-Ekong.

 

After that, Ghana held on to qualify for a fourth World Cup finals.

 

The Black Stars have returned to the global showpiece after failing to qualify for the 2018 edition in Russia.

 

Ghana had previously qualified for three World Cups in a row, from 2006 to 2014.

 

Ghana’s best World Cup showing was in 2010, when the team reached the quarterfinals.

 

When they travel to Qatar in November, they will seek to break that record.
