Twenty-three Black Stars trained at the Marrakech Sports City training facility on Wednesday, March 20, 2024 as part of the build up to the international friendly games against Nigeria and Uganda.

Otto Addo’s side have been in Morocco since Monday in preparation for the two games scheduled for Friday, March 22 and Tuesday, March 26, 2024 respectively.

Ghana opened camp with thirteen players before the rest of the squad reported Tuesday evening. The players look well-conditioned and ready to fight for places in the team as Ghana begins a new era under the tutelage of the former Borussia Dortmund star.

The two friendly games will give Otto Addo the opportunity to assess his team for the forthcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in June and other future assignments.

The players in camp include:  Osman Bukari, Edmund Addo, Jerome Opoku, Forson Amankwaah, Ebenezer Annan, Baba Iddrisu and Francis Abu, Tariq Lamptey and Lawrence Ati-Zigi.

The rest are Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew, Kasim Nuhu, Antoine Semenyo, Abdul Samed Salis, Patrick Kpozo, Alidu Seidu, Joseph Wollacott, Abdul Fatawu Issahaku, Denis Odoi, Ernest Nuamah, Osman Ibrahim, Abdulai Nurudeen and Frederick Asare.

The first game against Nigeria will be played at the Grande de Stade Marrakech in Morocco on Friday, March 22, 2024.
