Chris Hughton names Black Stars squad for 2026 World Cup qualifiers as Ayew, Kassim & others return


The beleaguered coach has announced a 25-man squad which he will be using to face Madagascar and Comoros in the World Cup qualifiers next two weeks

Ghana coach Chris Hughton has officially announced a 25-man squad for the upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The Black Stars are expected to bounce back to winning ways after the disappointing results against Mexico and USA during last month’s international friendlies.

The two defeats have casted doubts on Hughton’s future, with reports in the local media widely suggesting that he could be fired on Friday.

However, amid all the rumors, Hughton seems to make a huge statement by releasing his squad that he he will be using for the qualifiers.

Notably returning to the squad is captain Andre Ayew who has been without a club since leaving Premier League side Nottingham Forest last year August. The 33-year-old was dropped when Ghana faced Mexico and USA and his presence as well as experience is needed now than ever.

Also, defender Kassim Adams and Medeama striker Jonathan Sowah are back into the squad.

Meanwhile, Thomas Party will miss the games due to injury while Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew and West Ham United forward Kudus Mohammed are in the squad as expected.
