According to Kurt, the team's management is happy with the security arrangements, insisting it offers the Black Stars the peace of mind to focus on their upcoming matches.

"We are happy that you have taken time out of the busy activities at the World Cup to visit us to see the security arrangements for our team. This clearly shows the high level of professionalism of the Qatar Police and your Ghanaian counterparts," Okraku said.

"The personnel you have deployed here have so far demonstrated that good level of professionalism that has kept us safe and free from any worries since we arrived in Qatar on Friday to play in this tournament.

"We hope that they will continue with this approach towards our safety to allow us to focus on the matches and the task ahead in this tournament."

Black Stars, who are the lowest-ranked team at the tournament have been drawn in Group H alongside Portugal, South Korea and Uruguay.

Ghana will take on Portugal in their first game on November 24 before playing South Korea and Uruguay on November 28 and December 2 respectively.
