Sports Minister, Mustapha Ussif believes the Black Stars will be ready for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Black Stars engaged in two international friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua during the break.

Ghana lost 3-0 to Brazil but recovered to beat Nicaragua 1-0 on Tuesday in Spain through a strike from Abdul Fatawu Issahaku.

A chunk of Ghanaian fans were unhappy about the performances of the Black Stars in the two friendlies played.

But according to the Sports Minister, the Black Stars team will be in a good shape before the commencement of the World Cup.

“This is a process, we are building a team and I know that by the time we get to Abu Dhabi where we are going to have our final game, the team would have been so good and Ghanaians would see the difference,” he told Max TV.

Meanwhile, Mustapha Ussif was left to rue missed chances in the Black Stars narrow win over Nicaragua.

“We were expecting more goals in the game but at the end of the day we created a lot of chances but couldn’t convert them into goals,”
