I-Ghana izobamba iqhaza kwiNdebe yoMhlaba ye-Fifa  selokhu yagcina ukungenela lo mqhudelwano ngo-2014, kodwa ukuhlala kwayo e-Qatar kungase kube okwesikhashana.

Njengoba kukhona i-Portugal, i-Uruguay ne-South Korea ku-Group H kungase kube nzima kakhulu eqenjini lase-Afrika.

I-Ghana yayithwele kanzima ku-Africa Cup of Nations okwaholela ekutheni umqeqeshi uMilovan Rajevac axoshwe kwathi owayengumdlali u-Otto Addo wathatha izintambo.

I-Ghana ikhiphe i-Nigeria ukuze ithole indawo e-Qatar, kodwa yize inqobe umdlalo owodwa kwengu-12 kulo nyaka lincane ithemba lokuthi i-Ghana izoqhuba isikhathi eside e-Qatar.

Ukuya eNdebeni yoMhlaba kuzobenza babe izintandokazi kanti nokuwina ku-Group G kungasiza kakhulu leli qembu elihlonishwayo.

Phakathi kwalabo abaseqenjini lase-Ghana kukhona umdlali wasemuva we-Brighton & Hove Albion, uTariq Lamptey kanye no-Inaki Williams we-Atletico Bilbao bobabili abashintshe ukwethembeka kulo nyaka.

Abanye abadlali abafakiwe kubalwa umdlali wasesiswini we-Arsenal uThomas Partey, umdlali wasemuva we-Southampton uMohammed Salisu, umvikeli we-Leicester uDaniel Amartey kanye nomgadli we-Crystal Palace uJordan Ayew.

Ngaphandle kwamaligi amahlanu aphezulu kukhona umdlali wasesiswini we-Ajax uMohammed Kudus owenza kahle ngesikhathi iqembu lase-Netherlands likhankasela i-Uefa Champions League.

I-Ghana ingena e-Qatar ibekwe endaweni ka-61 emhlabeni futhi yenza kahle kakhulu kuma-quarter-final ngonyaka ka-2010.

Abalandeli bebhola bakuleli basabuzwa ubuhlungu bokuhlulwa i-Ghana ngendlela eyasusa umsindo emdlalweni wokuhlungela iNdebe yoMhlaba futhi ukufika kuma-quarter final kubalulekile njengoba i-Ghana ithola ithuba lokuziphindiselela. ULuis Suarez ne-Uruguay bavimbe ama-Black Stars ngesikhathi lo mgadli ekhipha ibhola emgqeni.

Ngesikhathi umgadli wase-Ghana u-Asamoah Gyan egeje iphenalthi iqembu lase-Afrika lagcina likhishwe esigabeni sokugcina sesishiyagalombili.

Kodwa uma sebedlala ne-Uruguay mhlampe kungenzeka ukuthi bazobe sebazi ukuthi bami kuphi ngeNdebe yoMhlaba njengoba i-Ghana izoqala umdlalo wayo ibhekene ne-Portugal ngaphambi kokubhekana ne-South Korea.
