The Black Stars kicked off their training camp on Monday in preparation for the upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Madagascar and Comoros.
The training camp saw the arrival of more than 20 players, led by the team captain, Andre Ayew.
Manager Chris Hughton, who named a 25-man squad for the crucial qualifiers last Thursday, is optimistic about the team’s chances. Ayew, who missed the October international break, is set to make a return and play a pivotal role in the squad.
However, there have been changes in the roster, with Southampton forward Kamaldeen Sulemana and Rayo Vallecano defender Abdul Mumin pulling out due to undisclosed reasons.
Their spots will now be filled by Abdul Fatawu Issahaku and Nurudeen Abdulai, adding a new dimension to the team’s lineup.
The team is scheduled to fly to Kumasi on Tuesday morning, where they will continue their rigorous training sessions in preparation for the matches.
The significance of these qualifiers cannot be overstated, as a successful campaign would see Ghana securing a spot in the prestigious 2026 FIFA World Cup.
Fans and football enthusiasts eagerly await the outcome of these qualifiers, hoping for a strong performance from the Black Stars as they strive to make their mark on the international stage.
