“The GFA has written to the Ministry that FIFA has transferred the prize money of the 2022 World Cup to the FA”
Outlining how the money will be used, Mustapha Ussif said, “We are just about going to AFCON. We also want to improve some sports infrastructure. The FA has written to us that they want to improve the infrastructure at Prampram”
Ghana placed last in the group and exited the competition at the group stages after losing to Portugal and Uruguay.
