Ghana will face Uruguay again at the World Cup

While Ghana is still celebrating its qualification for the World Cup in Qatar, the groups for the 22nd World Cup have already been drawn on Friday 1st of April. There will be many exciting and high-class duels such as Spain vs. Germany or France vs. Denmark.

The Black Stars of Ghana have been drawn into Group H by legendary Serbian coach Bora Milutinovic. There, Ghana will meet the teams from Portugal, Uruguay and Korea – a very difficult group for the team around captain Thomas Partey.

By the way, you can bet on all of the World Cup 2022. We tell you where!

The first match for the Black Stars is on the 24th of November

The Black Stars will start the tournament on Thursday, 24 November. The opponent is none other than the star ensemble from Portugal with its famous players Cristiano Ronaldo, Bruno Fernandez, Diogo Jota, Bernardo Silva and Joao Felix. That’s a lot of offensive power that Ghana will have to stop. But they have already proved that they can do that against Viktor Osimhen and his attacking colleagues from Nigeria.

In their 2nd group game, they face South Korea and the great Heung-Min Son on 28 November. However, this is a game in which Ghana absolutely must score, and they can.

Ghana can take avenge against Uruguay

In their last match on the 2nd of December, Ghana awaits the South American team from Uruguay and their star striker Edinson Cavani of Manchester United. Ghana has a known history with Uruguay: in 2010, the two teams met in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in South Africa. It is unforgettable how Luis Suarez prevented a clear scoring chance for the Black Stars with his hands in extra time and Asamoah Gyan missed the subsequent penalty kick.

Of course, Ghana is an outsider in the group. Many bookmakers have already published their odds, according to which there are odds of 12.00 for Ghana to win the group, the same odds that South Korea receives. The bookmakers’ favourite to win the group is of course Portugal with odds of 1.66, Uruguay is at 3.00.

The other African teams also have difficult groups. The reigning African champions Senegal face the secret favourites from the Netherlands, the South American surprise team Ecuador and the hosts from Qatar.

Senegal faces the Netherlands

Tunisia play in a group with France, Denmark and the winner of the match between the United Arab Emirates and Australia and Peru.
Morocco will face the strong Belgians and reigning runners-up Croatia, as well as Canada, who are taking part in a World Cup for the first time since 1986.
Finally, Cameroon will face Brazil, Switzerland and Serbia. All three teams have already met at the 2018 World Cup.

Ghana tries to get Otto Addo as a coach

Who will coach the Ghanaian team in November is still uncertain. However, there are voices that bring Otto Addo’s name into play after he led the Black Stars to the surprising qualification victory against Nigeria. But Otto Addo is still working for Borussia Dortmund. Talks with the Borussia officials will start soon.

Even as a child, I started typing the results of the Bundesliga with my friends at school. The stakes were modest back then: The lunch, a few marbles or maybe a milk slice. Then, at the age of 9, I played the penalty bet once - and immediately got 10 right. The previous week I had won 500 DM and in my childish imagination I was already imagining how many football pictures I could buy at the kiosk on the corner. Unfortunately, it was one of those match days when everything turned out as expected and I only won DM 8.10. Nevertheless, I followed the game with great interest. Nevertheless, the passion to correctly predict the outcome of sporting events haunted me for the rest of my life. I would have loved to own the sports almanac that Marty McFly bought in Back to the Future II. Much later, when I was already working as a journalist for newspapers and as a writer for television, I came across an international betting forum with over 100,000 members - and found out that a lot of people there were giving their tips on German football, but nobody seemed to have a real clue, so I wrote a few English-language preliminary reports with a few tips - and was right about everything. After that, an avalanche started. I got offers from bookmakers, sports papers and even betting syndicates to work for them - and I accepted a few of them too, experiencing the ups & downs of sports betting and travelling halfway around the world in the years that followed. There I met Chinese multimillionaires betting five to six figures, amateur players in Serbia or Turkey supporting their families with small stakes, South Africans gambling away half their fortune, Brazilians who could only leave their favelha and become rich by making the right tips. At one point my life was similar to Matthew McCaughaney's in the film Two For The Money - and far too much stress. I subsequently moved to another continent and ran an English-language football epaper about the Bundesliga from there. After the birth of my son, I devoted myself for many years only to artistic projects in the field of photography and literature. However, I am happy to share my knowledge and passion with the readers of bettingtipsafrica.
