Ghana’s quest to qualify for the 2026 FIFA World Cup remains a closely contested battle as the Black Stars strive for the sole automatic qualification spot in Group I. Ghana secured crucial victories, defeating the Central African Republic 4-3 in Kumasi and Mali 2-1 in Bamako, giving them three wins out of four qualification games.

This result placed Chad at the bottom of the six-team group with zero points, while Comoros achieved their third win in four games, matching Ghana’s record but leading the group due to a superior goal difference (+4) compared to Ghana’s +2.

Jordan Ayew’s goal celebration against CAR highlighted Ghana’s fighting spirit in this campaign. Meanwhile, Madagascar, having played out a goalless draw with Mali, ranks third with seven points, and Mali follows with five points.
