However, Danlad Ibrahim, Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, and Daniel Afriyie Barnieh were dropped from the squad. All seven players represented Ghana at the 2022 World Cup.

Yaw Acheampong said he is not in the position to say Hughton has not called the best players but rather he prefers to say the coach invited players he feels can give him results because coaching is results driven.
