2026 World Cup Qualifiers: Black Stars aims to record second win against Comoros on Tuesday

Published on: 20 November 2023

The Black Stars of Ghana are eager to record their second straight victory in the 2026 World Cup qualifications when they lock horns with Comoros on Tuesday.

Ghana face off Comoros at the Moroni Stadium in their second group game of the World Cup qualifiers.

The four-time African champions begun the World Cup qualification on a winning note after beating Madagascar narrowly at the Baba Yara Stadium last Friday.

Inaki Williams, who plays for Athletic Club, secured a late victory for the Black Stars, ending an 11-game goal drought for Ghana. The win marked a crucial moment for Williams, who had faced discussions about his goal-scoring form.

Having secured victory in their opening game, the West African powerhouse will be aiming to beat Comoros to secure their second consecutive win in the qualifiers.

The Black Stars arrived in Moroni last Saturday to continue preparation for the much-anticipated game against Comoros. The team held their first training session on Sunday as they gear up for the clash.

Meanwhile, Ghana will have another opportunity to make amends for their disappointing end to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) with an act of revenge against Comoros in the African qualifiers for the 2026 World Cup.

Ghana were only a draw away from proceeding from the group stage of the 2021 AFCON having lost to Morocco and drawn 1-1 with Gabon in their first two games of the tournament.

While Comoros appeared to be highly underrated, they shocked the four-time African champions by capitalizing on their numerical disadvantage due to Andre Ayew's red card in the early parts of the game.

They handed Ghana a painful 3-2 defeat despite goals from Alexander Djiku and Richmond Boakye Yiadom who helped to initially restore parity.

Thankfully for Ghana, they will face Comoros as they aim to make it to their fifth World Cup having appeared in 2006, 2010, 2014, and 2022.
