Today, the Black Stars of Ghana will begin training for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Mali and Central African Republic.

This has been announced by the Ghana Football Association (GFA) in a statement on its website with the University of Ghana Sports Stadium hosting the training session.

The team will train in Accra for five days before departing for Bamako on Tuesday, June 4, 2024, for the crucial Group I encounter against Mali.

According to the Ghana Football Association, today’s training session is open to the media and the public.

Ghana is set to play against Mali in Bamako and the Central African Republic at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi on June 6 and June 10, respectively.

The Black Stars’ World Cup dreams are at a critical juncture, as they face a daunting task against Mali and the Central African Republic following a sluggish start to their qualifying campaign.

With three points from a possible six, and a disappointing loss to Comoros in their second group match, the upcoming fixtures have become make-or-break for the Black Stars’ chances of securing a spot in the 2026 World Cup, set to take place in the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Head coach Otto Addo has named a 26-man squad for the qualifiers, including experienced players like Thomas Partey, Mohammed Kudus, and Jordan Ayew, as well as debutants Ibrahim Sulemana and Brandon Thomas-Asante.
