Former Ghana Football Association President Kwesi Nyantakyi has lent his support to the Black Stars’ new technical staff, headed by former footballer Otto Addo.
On Thursday, February 10, Nyantakyi remarked on GTV Sports Plus, “All that is expected of us is to support the GFA so that we may qualify for the World Cup.” “We just have two games left, and now is not the time to start pointing fingers.”
Former Netherlands international George Boateng and former Asante Kotoko boss Mas-Ud Didi Dramani will aid Otto Addo as the Black Stars prepare for the important World Cup qualifiers against Nigeria.
Chris Hughton, a former Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United coach, completes the technical staff. He was designated Technical Advisor, which was an unexpected move given that he had been touted for the head coach role with government support.
In late March, the Black Stars will face Nigeria twice for a spot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The first leg will be held in Ghana on Thursday, March 24, 2022, at the Cape Coast Stadium, with the return leg planned for March 27 at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.
After missing out on the 2018 edition, Ghana is seeking to return to the global extravaganza.
Nigeria, on the other hand, was in Russia and is optimistic of making it to the final for the second year in a row.
