Barring any last hitch, Black Stars are expected to leave the shores of the country today, Friday, June 3, 2022 ahead of the AFCON 2023  matchday 2 qualifier against Central African Republic on Sunday.

The team held their recovery training at the Accra Sports Stadium on Thursday to freshen up for the matchday 2 encounter.

The Black Stars were off to a flying start on Wednesday following a 3-0 win over Madagascar at the Cape Coast stadium – a win that sent Ghana to the top of Group E as Angola came from behind to beat Central African Republic 2-1 in the other Group E match.

Richard Ofori and Andy Yiadom have returned to training ahead of the qualifier.
