Ghana's U23 squad arrived at their base in Mozambique on Friday morning, as they prepare to face Senegal in their first match in Group B of the All Africa Games football competition.

Kwesi Appiah's side touched down in the capital Maputo after flying in from South Africa.

With just three more days of training to prepare for the game against the Senegalese, Appiah is aware of the challenge in store for the players in a group which also includes defending champions, Cameroon and Uganda.

“Yes there will be pressure but it is up to us to deal with it. It won’t be an easy tournament but we will do our best,” the Black Meteors coach said.

Ghana Squad:

Goalkeepers: Joseph Addo, Daniel Agyei and Collins Addo

Defenders: Augustine Sefa, Mohammed Sabato, Edward Kpodo, Ahmed Adams, Rashid Sumaila, Lawrence Lartey

Midfielders: Malik Akowuah, Mumuni Abubakar, Richard Mpong, Francis Morton, Sarfo Gyamfi, Alhaji Sanie, Prince Baffoe, Uriah Asante

Strikers: Gilbert Fiamenyo, Mahatma Otoo, Ben Acheampong
