Former Kumasi Asante Kotoko SC striker Kwame Opoku says Black Stars will qualify from the World Cup group stage with ease come November in Qatar.
According to him, coach Otto Addo has built a solid and competitive team with those on the bench equally good as the starters for Ghana’s senior national team.
He stated that Uruguay are no longer a strong candidate as they used to be in the past and sees only Portugal as a threat in the group going into the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament.
Speaking in an interview on Kumasi-based Abusua FM, the former Asante Kotoko goal poacher stated that the four-time African Champions can qualify easily from the group stages to make it to the next phase of the global showpiece.
“It will be very easy for Black Stars to qualify from our World Cup group. The coach has built a solid and a competitive team and those on the bench are also equal to the task,’’ Opoku said.
He added that: “Uruguay is not as solid as we used to know. It’s only Portugal that’s a bit difficult but we will still make it. It will be very easy for Ghana to qualify from the group.”
Opoku was a phenomenal striker in his first season in the Ghana Premier League in the 2020-21 season for Asante Kotoko before his move to the Algeria Ligue 1 to join USM Algiers.
He played for for the Black Stars team during coach CK Akonnor’s tenure as the Ghana coach.
