The Black Stars have arrived in South Africa for an international friendly against the Bafana Bafana to be played today after last weekend’s World Cup qualifier against Uganda.
Eighteen (18) out of the 23 who were in the squad that drew goalless with Uganda on Friday, travelled to South Africa with coach Avram Grant and the rest of the technical team.
Some players including Jonathan Mensah, Jordan Ayew and Afriyie Acquah could not travel with the team due to injuries.
The friendly is part of the team’s preparations for their next World Cup qualifier against Egypt which will be played in Cairo next month.
Coach Grant and his side trained in Durban on Sunday evening ahead of the game.
The players that traveled with the team include Adam Kawarasey, Harrison Afful, Daniel Amartey, Enoch Adu Kofi, Gilbert Koomson,Thomas Partey, and Razak Braimah
The rest are Baba Rahman, Agyemang Badu, John Boye, Edwin Gyimah, David Accam, Samuel Tetteh, Frank Acheampong, Christian Atsu, Majeed Waris and Asamoah Gyan.
In another development, the Black Stars management committee chairman, George Afriyie has admitted the Black Stars players looked comfortable in their game against the Cranes and wants to see some changes.
George who is clearly not happy with the performance of the Stars says his team lacked the competitive edge and needs to start injecting new players to create competition.
“I am looking forward to a healthy competition in the team, that is what I personally want to see,” he told Accra based Asempa FM.
“As you rightly said some players looked and feel comfortable in certain positions.
“But we should also ask ourselves if we have better players than what we have at the moment.”
