5 Key Black Stars Players Set To Play Their Last World Cup in Qatar

The World Cup in Qatar will be the last global showpiece for several Black Stars players.

Ghana qualified for the Mundial after they edged their West African rivals in a nail-biting World Cup last round qualifiers staged over two legs.

The Black Stars looking to assemble their greatest stars as they prepare  to become the first African country to at least reach the semi finals of the Mundial.

Ayew has been a sensational servant to his country. The Black Stars captain made his debut for the senior national team in 2007 at the age of 17.

He is the most experienced player in the Ghana set-up, having played in two World Cup tournaments in 2010 and 2014, scoring one goal.

  • Jordan Ayew

The Crystal Palace forward will be desperate to make a splash at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, having never scored for the Black Stars in over a year.

But given that Jordan Ayew will be 35 in 2026, another World Cup appearance beyond Qatar feels pretty unlikely.

  • Andy Yiadom

The Reading right full-back has gone ahead to play 22 games for Ghana, including his cameo appearance when the Black Stars sealed qualification in Abuja to Qatar at the expense of Nigeria.

The 2022 World Cup will be Yiadom’s first ever World Cup appearance, but at age 30, he may have entered his final World Cup days.

  • Thomas Partey

Partey helped Ghana book their place at the World Cup finals on Tuesday as he is set to play an important role again for the Black Stars in Qatar.

The Arsenal man’s crucial goal against Nigeria in Abuja was enough to hand Otto Addo’s men qualification via the away goal rule.

The 28-year-old, who will be 29 in June, seems unlikely to ever wear the Black Stars jersey given that he will be 33 during the 2026 edition.
