Chris Hughton from March 2022 was the technical advisor of the Black Stars during the two-legged World Cup play-off game against Nigeria and at the World Cup.

The experienced trainer has coached Newcastle United, Norwich City, Tottenham Hotspurs, Birmingham, Brighton, and Nottingham Forest.

Hughton will lead Ghana to play Angola at the Baba Yara  Stadium on March 23 before traveling to Luanda for the reverse fixture four days later.
