Midfielder Afriyie Acquah is expected to arrive in Ghana on Monday night to join the Black Stars’ early preparations ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

The on-loan Parma midfielder will be amongst a host of foreign-based players to begin training in Ghana’s non-residential camp on Tuesday in Accra.

Acquah has had a fabulous season since returning to the Italian top flight on loan from German club TSG Hoffenheim.

The 22-year-old made his 27th Serie-A appearance in Parma’s 2-0 win over Livorno on Sunday which qualified the side for next season’s Europa League.

His good form has earned him a place in Ghana’s provisional 26-man squad for the World Cup but many believe he will be one of the three casualties to be decided on by coach Kwesi Appiah after the May 31st friendly against the Netherlands.

The ex Palermo man is however determined to prove himself as he arrives on Monday night.

Acquah posted a picture of himself having packed bag and baggage ready for his trip to Ghana on his Instagram page.

He said: “Thank God for a good season!! Off to gh [Ghana] now.”

Acquah will be joining the likes of capatain Asamoah Gyan, Rabiu Mohammed, Samuel Inkoom, Harrison Afful, Rashid Sumaila and Jerry Akaminko who have already arrived in the country ahead of Tuesday’s training.

The Black Stars will be playing a farewell match against a local select side on Friday before flying out to the Netherlands on Saturday to intensify their preparations.

    Take this guy to Brazil just for his fashion statement and maybe for his energy playing for Parma this season. Cut one Ayew and the other two players who will come to camp hiding injuries. I know the Coach will flush them out with a grueling, killer conditioning drill. Do not take half fit players or old men to Brazil they will break down before the tourney even begins.

    Real salacious,well done bruv for standing up to that pig called selfmade who has no self respect .selfmade has never travel outside his village.Do we have to worry about such a low class inferior tart. He is created about ten names on GSN,if you are not suffering from schizoid deficiency disorder,would you do that.Jarkarta,Nana,Big boss,bobby and blazer......very stupid. He is living with his parent in one single room,he pays no bills,doesn't pay tax ,he has no responsibility,goes to toilet in a bush do a wee wee anywhere,is this TIN something we should worried about? My eighteen year old nephew is just bought his own house paying council tax,insurance,national insurance from his eBay business.He is taking after the family.He has a big responsibility. 50 year selfmade goes out 10am to do 419 comes home 6pm,his useless parents leaves his food by the fire side ,he eats ,go to sleep in the same room with his parents and watch life porn between two useless animals.No responsibility and he is 50years.Rape girls as little as 6.selfmade,God will punish you.You are lucky you live in a bush in Ghana. Real Sallacious,don't waste your breath because Selfmade will die as poor as his useless father. You have travel and see the other part of the world unlike those stupid fools who feel so jealous. Selfmade blame yourself you are cursed. Funny to read a bush persona trying west coast.
