Kenya camping

Ghana arrived in Kenya on Sunday to prepare for the impending Sudan game on Saturday. That would be another round of the World/Nations' Cup qualifiers.

There were seventeen players were at the last training session in Accra last Saturday, from the 22 that went to Mali where they secured a 2-0 victory.

The team is made up of Richard Kingson, George Owu, John Mensah, John Paintsil, Eric Addo, Isaac Vorsah, Micheal Essien, Mousa Narry, Samuel Kyere, Samuel Inkoom and Bernard Kumordji.

Ernest Papa Arko, Prince Tagoe, Kojo Asamoah, Mathew Amoah, Opoku Agyeman and Junior Manuel Agogo are the others.

The Black Stars training would involve a game with a Division 2 Kenyan team later today.

They'll be expected to leave the East African country before departing to Omdurman on Thursday to get ready.

Milovan Rajevac: "We are going to work seriously on our strength and concentration in the next few days and I believe this will get us well prepared for the task ahead.

"The Sudanese side is a good team, with a lot of talented players. They could be dangerous on any day and are very potent in the dying minutes of every game, so we must guard against these things."

He said there would be slight technical and tactical changes to the team to enable them to achieve their target in Sudan. A victory for The Black Stars in Omdruman will put them on the brink of a second successive World Cup appearance.
