Sellas Tetteh has taken his Ghana U-20 squad to Spain, where they will round up their preparations for the 2013 African Youth Championship.

The Black Satellites will begin the second leg of their European tour on Tuesday in Catalonia where they will play a trial match with the youth side of Barcelona.

Ghana kicked off their tour from Italy last Thursday where they were based for five days. Sellas Tetteh watched his team beat the youth team of the Italian Serie B side, Novara, 3-2 on Monday.

The national side are preparing for this month's African Youth Championship in Algeria, which starts on from March 16 to 30, 2013.

Ghana are in Group A alongside hosts Algeria. The Black Satellites are also drawn against Benin and Egypt.

The team will be based in the town of Ain Pemouchent while Group B will be in Oran.

The eight-team finals will see the top four teams qualifying to represent Africa at the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Turkey.

Ghana, three-time winners (1993, 1999 and 2009), will be making a ninth appearance.
