Ghana to face former coach Kwasi Appiah in 2025 Afcon qualifiers

Ghana's Path to AFCON 2025: Reunion with Former Coach Appiah Looms

Ghana’s Black Stars will face their former coach Kwesi Appiah, now leading Sudan, in the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.



Appiah, who guided Ghana through the 2014 World Cup and managed the team in the 2019 AFCON, is currently an executive council member of the Ghana Football Association (GFA).


Ghana, four-time AFCON champions, have struggled in recent tournaments, failing to progress past the group stages in the last two editions.

Currently coached by Otto Addo, the Black Stars aim to secure their 25th appearance at Africa’s premier football competition.


Sudan, winners of the 1970 AFCON and last present in the 2021 tournament, have experienced a resurgence under Appiah’s leadership.


The team, assisted by fellow Ghanaian Ignatius Osei Fosu, currently leads Senegal in the 2026 World Cup qualifying campaign.

Group F of the 2025 AFCON qualifiers also includes Angola and Niger.


Below is the full draw:


The qualifying matches are scheduled to take place between September and November 2024, with the top two teams from each group advancing to the finals in Morocco.
