2026 World Cup: Does Ghana Have The Chance To Qualify?
The group stage of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup is coming to an end and, at the same time, the scenarios for the qualifying phase are becoming clearer.
Here’s what needs to happen for Ghana to progress through the group and book a ticket to the 2026 World Cup in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Comoros became the first team in Group I to win their first two matches, beating Central African Republic and Ghana respectively.
Group matches will be played at home and away, giving all countries the chance to qualify for the next World Cup.
With this format, only two teams will have automatic qualification, namely the first and second team from the group stage.
As Ghanaians’ euphoria over their stars reaches the limit of mathematical calculation to discover the number of points needed to guarantee a place at the World Cup, taking into account the first two matches, Ghana still has a chance of qualifying .
With eight qualifying matches remaining, the West African country has ample opportunity to turn the tide and increase its chances of securing a place on the world stage in 2026.
They will need at least five wins out of eight to qualify for the World Cup. The upcoming matches will be crucial for the Black Stars as they strive to recover from this worrying start and secure their place in the highly anticipated 2026 World Cup.
