Communications Director of the Ghana Football Association [GFA], Henry Asante Twum has revealed that the country had $9.5 million after exiting at the group phase of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The West African country made a return to the Mundial after securing qualification at the expense of Nigeria.

Having been housed in Group H, Ghana opened their campaign with a defeat against Portugal.

In the second group game, the Black Stars recorded a 3-2 win over South Korea.

Heading into the final group game, Ghana needed a draw against Uruguay to book a place in the last 16 but the team suffered a 2-0 defeat against the two-time world champions.

However, Asante Twum speaking in an interview revealed that the country received the said amount despite exiting at the group phase of the tournament in the Gulf country.

“Ghana earned $9.5 million at the group stage of the World Cup,” he told Asempa FM.

Meanwhile, the Black Stars are expected to reassemble in March for the doubleheader against Angola in the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations [ACFCON] qualifiers with a new head coach expected to be announced this month.
