|| Four-time African Cup of Nations
winners, Ghana have yet to claim a place at
the finals of a FIFA World Cup™ tournament
despite nine attempts to date. On their debut
in the 1962 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, they
were narrowly knocked out by Morocco and in
subsequent years found victory impossible
to come by.
||The qualification group for the 2002 FIFA
World Cup proved a nightmare for the Ghanaians
-- the team ended up in fourth place behind
Nigeria, Liberia and Sudan.
|| Ghana's hopes of reaching the first Asian
finals were effectively ended by a 3-1 defeat
at home to Liberia and an unconvincing draw
against Sierra Leone. Ghana saw off Somalia
in the preliminary qualifiers for the 2006
FIFA World Cup.
