Ghana must not miss out on 2026 World Cup – Mohammed Polo

Ghanaian football legend Mohammed Polo has emphasized the critical need for the Black Stars to qualify for the 2026 World Cup.

The four-time African champions are set to continue their qualification campaign with an important match against Mali on Thursday, June 6, at the Stade du 26 Mars, followed by a crucial home game against the Central African Republic on June 10 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

Despite a challenging start to the qualifiers, Polo, a former AFCON winner with the Black Stars, insists that Ghana cannot afford to miss the 2026 World Cup, which will be hosted in the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

Speaking about the team’s prospects, Polo expressed his unwavering support while also reminding the players of the high expectations: “These players have been given the opportunity to represent the Black Stars. Although I fervently hope they succeed and will fully support them, they will hear from us if they don’t,” he told Akoma FM.

“Ghana cannot afford to miss the World Cup, and since we failed in Qatar and Afcon, we should make it mandatory to qualify for the US this time. Previously, there was only one slot available, but now there are five, so we must seize this opportunity to become eligible.

“As I mentioned before, qualification is essential because Ghanaians will not overlook failure, and this can only be attained via diligence,” he added.

Ghana currently sits in fourth place in Group I, with three points from two games, having secured a victory against Madagascar and suffered a defeat to Comoros.
