The Black Stars qualified for the play-off round after pipping South Africa to top spot in Group G during the last international break.

There is still the issue of SAFA's protest regarding the officating in the encounter, which has been lodged with FIFA.

Former Black Stars defender Dan Quaye feels the experienced players should be called up for the play-off round.

“The playoffs will not be easy because the remaining teams are difficult. Truth be told, our performance in the Group stages was low and we only pray to get a good draw. The coach must sharpen the team before the playoffs," he told Aben FM, as per Football Ghana.

“I believe this is the time the team need experienced players. I will be happy if the coach invite, Jonathan Mensah, Harrison Afful, John Boye, Frank Acheampong and Kevin Prince Boateng back into the team. I want their inclusion because they have tasted the qualifiers before and will not struggle.

“It’s seems we are joking because depending solely on the young ones won’t help us. African football is different from that of Europe, Kamaldeen Sulemana is a fantastic player and doing good in France but he has not been able to fit in well with the Black Stars because African football is more aggressive as compared to European game.

“At the moment we need more experienced players to be able to qualify."

Here are the 10 African nations who've qualified for the World Cup play-off round:
