Black Stars to depart for UAE camping today

The Black Stars squad will jet off to Dubai to start a three-weeks camping ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations which starts on 21st June.

Coach Kwesi Appiah travels without the compliment of his full squad with Mubarak Wakaso, Asamoah Gyan, Thomas Partey and Kwadwo Asamoah all expected to join the team on Monday.

The team is expected to hold its first training session tomorrow.

Ghana are scheduled to play two pre-tournament friendlies against Namibia and South Africa in the Gulf country.

The Black Stars have been pooled alongside Benin, Guinea-Bissau and Cameroon in Group F at the tournament.

The four-time champions are seeking to end their 37-year wait for continental success, having won their last title in 1982.

Kwesi Appiah’s side have come close to ending their drought at the last six tournaments, having reached the semi-finals, and even going as far as the final in 2010 and 2015.
