Black Stars gear up for Mauritius


The Black Stars began residential camping at the Alisa Hotel on Monday after a full-scale training at the Accra Sports Stadium in preparation for their 2017 Africa Nations Cup qualifier against Mauritius away on Sunday.

Following the completion of the various European leagues, Coach Avram Grant has all his 23 invited players in camp, except goalkeeper Razak Braimah and debutant Thomas Partey, who featured for Atletico Madrid against Real Madrid in the European Champions League final at the San Siro Stadium last Saturday.

Partey and Braimah, whose club Cordoba is engaged in a La Liga play-off, are expected to join their teammates before the Stars emplane to Mauritius Wednesday night.

According to the spokesperson of the Ghana Football Association, Ibrahim Sannie Daara, players who are already in the country underwent a three-day non-residential conditioning at Dodowa before intensifying their preparations yesterday.

The home-based players in the squad are Samuel Tetteh of WAFA, Mohammed Kadri of Ashgold — another debutant — and goalkeepers Fatau Dauda and Richard Ofori of Ashgold and Wa All Stars respectively.
