The Black Stars of Ghana have been drawn in Group I for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Ghana will face Mali, Madagascar, Central Africa Republic, Comoros and Chad in the qualifying series for the global showpiece.
Ghana was in Pot 2 ahead of the draw which took place in Ivory Coast during the CAF 45th Ordinary General Assembly due to being outside the top 10 places in the FIFA Rankings.
