The Ghana national football team, popularly known the Black Stars, is the national association football team of Ghana and is controlled by the Ghana Football Association.

Although the team did not qualify for the senior World Cup until 2006, Ghana has enjoyed tremendous success on the youth level, winning the World Under-17 title twice, and finishing second at the World Youth Championship twice as well. The team has won the African Cup of Nations four times (in 196319651978, and 1982), making Ghana the second most successful team in the contest's history, together with Cameroon, after Egypt won a fifth title in 2006.
