Schlupp joins squad as Black Stars get preparations going

Ghana will continue with preparations at the Accra Stadium, Wednesday morning after holding their first training session on Tuesday morning ahead of the game with Uganda this weekend.

The opening day of training saw 21 players report for duty but the arrival of Jeffery Schlupp now leaves the Black Stars with a near full-house as they await Solomon Asante to join in.

Schlupp will train with the squad on Wednesday.

After two wins from four, the Black Stars lead the Group E standings in the qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

Stand-in coach Maxwell Konadu’s side travel to Kamapala for Saturday’s qualifying campaign and will be looking for another victory when they face the Cranes on Saturday afternoon.

The Black Stars will wrap up their preparations in Accra on Thursday before flying out later in the evening.

Ghana have two fixtures remaining on the calendar for the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying with the tough encounter with Uganda in Kampala on Saturday 15 November and the concluding fixture on Wednesday 19 November.

Konadu named a 23-man squad for the two games.
