Black Stars At Full Strength For Turkey Clash As Gyan, Four Others Arrive
Posted On Tuesday, 13th August 2013
Ghana will have a full house for Tuesday’s training session as the five remaining players have joined camp in Istanbul ahead of Wednesday’s friendly against Turkey.
According to the Ghana FA, coach Kwesi Appiah is delighted to have captain Asamoah Gyan and four others joined the Black Stars camp on Tuesday morning.
Gyan and the quartet of Rabiu Mohammed, Rashid Sumaila, Mohammed Awal and goalkeeper Fatau Dauda have all reported to camp to swell the number of players in camp to 19.
The long journey from South Africa to Istanbul delayed the arrival of Rashid Sumaila, Mohammed Awal and goalkeeper Fatau Dauda who all play in the Southern African country.
The coach announced 21 players for camp but Emmanuel Banahene and Albert Adomah withdrew for various reasons.
Ghana held their first training session in Istanbul, Monday evening without Gyan and the rest.
The training session will be the last before they take on Turkey in a friendly to prepare for next month’s World Cup qualifier against Zambia.
