Ghana to open AFCON training camp in the UAE today

Ghana's 26-man squad will open their pre-Africa Cup of Nations camp in the UAE later today (Tuesday) after arriving in the Asian country early this morning.

The 26-man squad, which was released by coach Avram Grant on Monday morning, is expected to start their training at the Al Ain Stadium.

The Israeli coach is expected to have the full squad by Wednesday as some eight players were in action for their clubs in Europe on Monday night.

Eight (8) players who did not train with the squad including Leicester City's Daniel Amartey, Christian Atsu, Andy Yiadom, Andre and Jordan Ayew, Adam Kwarasey, Thomas Partey and Asamoah Gyan will all join the squad in the UAE.

The former Chelsea and West Ham United manager announced a 26-man squad to train in Al Ain's UAE City training Camp.

Grant named Barnsley's Andy Yiadom, striker Raphael Dwamena and Schalke 04's Bernard Tekpetey to join usual faces.

Ghana won silver medal at the last edition of the competition after losing on penalties to the Ivory Coast in the final.
