Nketiah was crowned the top scorer’s accolade in the recently ended Carabao Cup in England with five goals.
Ghana will open their tournament at the 2022 World Cup by taking on Portugal before playing Uruguay and then wrap up their group campaign with a clash with South Korea.
Their fourth appearance at the global tournament will come months after they suffered a surprise group phase exit at the recent AFCON.
The Black Stars were knocked out of the group phase of the tournament in Cameroon without a win in a group comprising Morocco, Gabon and Comoros.
They suffered an opening group match defeat to the Atlas Lions, drew with the Gabonese before a shocking defeat to Comoros which led to their exit with just one point.
