African Cup Of Nations

Black Stars continue with intensive training ahead of AFCON qualifiers

There was a lot of positive vibes surrounding the Black Stars when they continued with their preparations for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Madagascar and Central Africa Republic.

Almost player called up by coach Otto Addo was present including captain Andre Ayew and his brother Jordan Ayew.

Also, debutants Augustine Okrah and Hearts of Oak youngster Daniel Afriyie Barnieh as well as Wakaso Mubarak were all around.

The coaches were impressed with how the players composed themselves in the tasks given them as tactics and formations to be used against Madagascar in particular on Wednesday.

During training, Andre Ayew appeared to have picked up a knock after a challenge from Gideon Mensah but he quickly brushed it away.

Ayew later continued with the session. Wakaso Mubarak who has also been without a football game for almost six months had a wonderful training.

Per sources, Wakaso may start against Madagascar and Augustine Okrah will likely make the final 23 matchday squad to be used on Wednesday.

Otto Addo has been hugely impressed with Okrah’s output at training and he is ready to give him a chance to make his bow.

The team will depart Ghana on Thursday to Central Africa Republic to play the second game of the group.
