Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Richard Ofori has been excluded in Ghana‘s squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Ofori was initially included in the 55-man provisional squad by coach Otto Addo but was ruled out of the Qatar tournament after he injured himself during the MTN8 final against AmaZulu.
As a result, Ghana have been forced to name three inexperienced goalkeepers after their first two choices Ofori and Jojo Wollacott from Charlton Athletic were both injured in action.
The squad will be captained by Dede Ayew, who was part of the team that reached the quarterfinals in South Africa in 2010.
The Ghana squad:
Goalkeepers: Lawrence Ati-Zigi (St Gallen), Danlad Ibrahim (Asante Kotoko), Manaf Nurudeen (Eupen)
Defenders: Joseph Aidoo (Celta Vigo), Daniel Amartey (Leicester City), Abdul-Rahman Baba (Reading), Alexander Djiku (Racing Strasbourg), Tariq Lamptey (Brighton & Hove Albion), Gideon Mensah (AJ Auxerre), Denis Odoi (Club Brugge), Mohammed Salisu (Southampton), Alidu Seidu (Clermont Foot)
Midfielders: Andre Ayew (Al Sadd), Mohammed Kudus (Ajax Amsterdam), Daniel-Kofi Kyereh (SC Freiburg), Elisha Owusu (Gent), Thomas Partey (Arsenal), Salis Abdul Samed (Racing Lens)
Forwards: Daniel Afriyie (Hearts of Oak), Jordan Ayew (Crystal Palace), Osman Bukari (Red Star Belgrade), Issahaku Abdul Fatawu (Sporting Lisbon), Antoine Semenyo (Bristol City), Kamal Sowah (Club Brugge), Kamaldeen Sulemana (Stade Rennes), Inaki Williams (Athletic Bilbao)
