The senior national team Ghana Black Stars have arrived in Cape Coast to continue preparations for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa.

The team arrived in the Central Regional capital on Tuesday afternoon and is expected to hold two training sessions Cape Coast Stadium, the match venue, before facing Bafana Bafana on Thursday, November 14.

Twenty-one players and technical team were joined by Ghana Football Association (GFA) President Kurt Okraku, as they arrived in Cape Coast

Head coach Kwesi Appiah invited 23 players for the match but injuries have forced Harrison Afful, Mubarak Wakaso and Mohammed Salisu out while Germany-based Christopher Antwi-Adjei withdrew from the squad due to passport bureaucracy.

Kwesi Appiah, however, has replaced Afful and Wakaso with Hearts of Oak captain Fatawu Mohammed and Gideon Mensah of Belgian side Zulte Waregem respectively.

On their way to Cape Coast, the Black Stars bus made two deliberate stops in Winneba and Makessim for the players to interact and fraternise with fans as the hash tag ‘BringBackTheLove’ campaign intensifies.

The ‘BringBackTheLove’ campaign is an initiative by GFA. The campaign is aimed at igniting passion and galvanizing support for the Black Stars and other national teams.

Black Stars will be hoping to start their qualifying campaign on a high by beating the South Africans.

After South Africa, Ghana will travel to take on Sao Tome and Principe on Monday, November 18.
