Executive Committee member of the Ghana Football Association Wilfred Osei Kweku Palmer has stated that Ghana’s hopes of qualifying to the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup is now left with 30% after Friday’s disappointing draw against Congo.

And speaking to Happy FM Weekend Sports, Palmer says the team’s hopes of making a fourth successive tournament appearance is now 30% left after Friday’s poor outing.
“We now have only 30% chance to qualify to Russia 2018 but we’ll keep fighting until the end.”
Ghana will jet off to Brazzaville for the return encounter on Tuesday, September 5.
