Mohammed Kudus of West Ham United has arrived in Kumasi to join his Black Stars teammates in training ahead of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
With Kudus’ arrival, the overall number of players in camp will rise to 27, representing the complete complement of players invited to the event.
The Black Stars began preparations for the continental extravaganza without star player Kudus, who has been sidelined with a minor injury.
Kudus, who has been in Accra for a few days, has relocated to Kumasi to help the Black Stars prepare for the competition.
As the pursuit for a fifth AFCON trophy continues, the Black Stars will compete for the crown in neighboring Ivory Coast. On Wednesday, Ghana will sail for Ivory Coast.
Ghana will begin their campaign against Cape Verde on Sunday, January 14, 2024, before facing Egypt and Mozambique in Group B on January 18 and 22, respectively.
The tournament is set to begin on Saturday, January 13 and last until February 11, 2024.
Ghana has a long history of AFCON success, having won the title four times, most recently in 1982. However, they have lost three finals since then, including penalties losses to Ivory Coast in 1992 and Egypt in 2010, as well as a repeat defeat to Ivory Coast.
