The team was drawn into Group G alongside Bafana Bafana, who are also in the same 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying group with Black Stars. Ethiopia and Zimbabwe are the other countries which make the group complete.

Ghana will be hoping to secure qualification to the World Cup after missing out on the 2018 edition in Russia. This comes after qualifying for three consecutive World Cups (2006, 2010, 2014)

The newly appointed Black Stars coach Charles Kwabla Akonnor, Ghana FA Vice President Mark Addo and General Secretary Prosper Harrison Addo were present at the draw.

Here’s a full list of the draw:

Group A: Algeria, Burkina Faso, Niger, Djibouti
