The famous drum used by the Black Stars of Ghana for their Jama sessions before games at the 2022 World Cup has been added to the FIFA Museum.

A pre-game ritual of singing and dancing by the team was well-received by the world football governing body, making it a part of the tournament's history.

The drum added to FIFA's new collection was from the 2022 edition in Qatar and was used by Ghana before the 3-2 victory over South Korea in Group H.

Although Ghana were eliminated after the first round, the drum will stay at FIFA's base in Switzerland.

"Ghana players made their arrival to the stadiums at Qatar 2022 in style. This particular drum is now part of the FIFA Museum collection. Find this and other great stories of Qatar 2022 in the new edition of "The Official History of the FIFA World Cup," wrote the FIFA Museum page on X, formerly Twitter.

It becomes the second item from the Black Stars to find its way into FIFA's museum, with the first being Asamoah Gyan's jersey from the 2010 World Cup in the game against Uruguay.

The four-time African champions have been to the World Cup four times, with their first being in 2006 when they reached the Round of 16, as reported by the Olympics.

Kudus' brace helps Ghana beat South Korea

Sports Brief also previously reported that Mohammed Kudus scored twice for Ghana in their 3-2 win over South Korea in the 2022 World Cup group stages.

AS Monaco defender, Mohammed Salisu, had opened the scoring in the thrilling encounter at the Education City Stadium before Kudus added a second.

Gyan discloses biggest career regret

Sports Brief also reported that Black Stars legend, Asamoah Gyan stated his Ghana penalty miss against Uruguay remains the biggest dent in his career.

After hanging up his boots, the iconic player has started an All Regional Games initiative, which will see athletes across 16 regions participate for laurels.

The former Ghana captain retired from football in 2023 following a career that spanned over two decades, including 19 years of service to the Black Stars.
