Brazil are second with a 15.73% chance, Spain with 11.53%, England with 8.03% and Belgium with 7.90% chance.

The Black Stars have already begun preparations for the 2022 World Cup after playing four matches in the June international window.

Addo’s side played Madagascar and the Central African Republic (CAR) in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers, beating the former and drawing with the latter.

Ghana then headed to Japan to play in the four-nation Kirin Cup, where they lost to the hosts in their opening game before beating Chile on penalties to finish third in the tournament.

Meanwhile, some Europe-born players, including the Williams brothers, Inaki and Nico, Tariq Lamptey, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Eddie Nketiah are expected to confirm their nationality switches before the next international window.
