Ghana

Known by the nickname ‘Black Stars’, Ghana will be appearing at their fourth successive WAFU Nations Cup and hosting the tournament for the second time in a row.

Their first two tournaments in Nigeria 2010 and 2011 ended with third and fourth-place finishes respectively, while as hosts in the last tournament in 2013 they emerged as champions after topping their group and defeating Senegal 3-1 in the final in Kumasi.

This year Ghana will face Gambia in the opening knockout round and look to advance into the group stage alongside the region’s heavyweights.

Listed 50th on FIFA’s official world rankings, the Black Stars’ locally-based side was given a tough working over by Burkina Faso in the teams’ two-legged qualifying tie for the 2018 African Nations Championship, and they will be aiming to defend their WAFU Nations Cup title.
