Owner and bank-roller of Ghana Division One League Zone Two side New Edubiase United FC, Abdul Salam Yakubu believes Ghana will easily qualify from the World Cup group to the next stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament.
The veteran football administrator says Ghana have got enough quality players to overcome the likes of Portugal, Uruguay and South Korea in Group H.
According to him, Portugal is not the same as they were before and their star player Cristiano Ronaldo is not as good as he used to be.
He again stated that, Uruguay doesn’t have enough quality players aside out of form super stars Luiz Suárez and Edinson Cavani.
“I think this team will do better than 2010 squad with the likes of Partey, Dede, Kudus and others we will qualify easily from the Group H,” he told Westgold Radio.
Ghana have been drawn against Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay in Group H and despite the strength of the team in the lot, Mr Yakubu remains hopeful.
“Their leader isn’t active like before, Cristiano Ronaldo in 2014 isn’t the same as now. South Korea isn’t a football nation. Uruguay has only Suarez and Cavani who are not dangerous like before so we can qualify at their expense,” he added.
“The black stars will reach the semi-finals in Qatar with the kind of technical handlers we have, Otto Addo, George Boateng and Chris Houghton are world class coaches with experience of which we saw how technically good they are in the second half of the friendly Ghana played against Brazil .
“So we hope for the best and wish the black stars the best of luck.”
