Ghana must qualify for 2026 World Cup, says legendary Mohammed Polo

Ghana football legend, Mohammed Polo, has emphasized the imperative for the senior national team, the Black Stars, to secure qualification for the 2026 World Cup.

With their journey to the tournament recommencing, the four-time African champions are gearing up for a crucial clash against Mali on Thursday, June 6, at the Stade du 26 Mars, followed by a home fixture against the Central African Republic on June 10 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.

In light of a challenging start to the qualifiers, Polo, a former AFCON winner with the Black Stars, underlines the nation’s inability to afford missing out on the 2026 Mundial, slated to be hosted across the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

Expressing his sentiments on the matter, Polo asserted to Kumasi-based Akoma FM, “These players have been assigned to the Black Stars, even though I fervently hope they succeed and will fully support them, they will hear from us if they don’t.

He continued, “Ghana cannot afford to be absent from the World Cup. With our disappointments in Qatar and Afcon, it’s imperative to secure qualification this time around. With five slots available, it’s an opportunity we must seize.”

“Qualification is paramount because Ghanaian fans demand excellence, and this can only be achieved through dedication,” he emphasized.

Presently, Ghana occupies the 4th spot in Group I with three points from two games, having secured a win against Madagascar and suffered a defeat to Comoros.
