Ghana coach Otto Addo is expected to submit his provisional squad to the Ghana FA in the coming days, GHANAsoccernet.com has gathered.
The Dortmund trainer will present a 35-man provisional squad to the Ghana FA.
Following FIFA’s decision to extend football’s relaxation of rules that help coaches and players during the COVID-19 pandemic, Addo can name 26 players for the global showpiece. Coaches could previously name up to 23 players for World Cup.
Addo and his technical team members, including George Boateng, Didi Dramani, and former Premier League manager Chris Hughton, have been tasked with selecting the best players available to Ghana, and they must do so in order for the Black Stars to excel in Qatar.
Ghana will submit its final squad for the 2022 World Cup by November 13, 2022 – seven days before the opening game of the tournament.
“70 percent of the players currently on international duty with Ghana’s squad who meet Nicaragua in Lorca, Spain on Tuesday will be in Qatar, Addo hinted on naming his squad in an interview with Bild after the Brazil and Nicaragua games.
“The remaining 30 percent will be “tight decisions”.
“We’re watching the players closely for the next few games to see who could play for Qatar in October,” added the 47-year-old.
