“We came to Ethiopia purposely to acclimatize and so far so good almost all the players are here and we are going through our programs perfectly ” Kwesi Appiah said.
“The altitude in Kenya is very high and that is the reason why we came to Ethiopia because the altitude here is higher than that in Kenya.” the Black Stars gaffer added.
