The Ghana Football Association has named a crack coaching squad for the 2022 World Cup playoffs against Nigeria next month.


The Football Association has appointed Borussia Dortmund trainer Otto Addo and will be assisted by Aston Villa U19 coach George Boateng and former Nordsjælland assistant coach Mas-Ud Didi Dramani.


Former Newcastle United and Brighton coach Chris Houghton has been named as the technical advisor of the team for the crucial match against Nigeria in March.


The Ghana FA and government appear to have found a middle ground in reaching a consensus on the technical direction of the team.

This appointment put to rest weeks of intense lobbying and speculation regarding the future of the four-time African champions.

The Ghana FA confirmed the latest appointment after a meeting of the Executive Council on Wednesday.
