Ghana first qualified for the World Cup in 2006, and impressed in their debut World Cup tournament in Germany, and was kicked out by Brazil in the round of 16.
The four-time African Champions bounced back four years later in South Africa, Ghana held the fourth for Africa by reaching the quarter-finals, only to be denied a place in the last four by a Luis Suarez handball and the lottery of penalty kicks.
Ghana last performed at the 2014 World Cup and was dropped from the group stages with so many issues concerning players fighting over unpaid bonuses and missed the 2018 Mundial in Russia after losing to Egypt in the last round of the qualifiers.
