Ghana’s camp in the Netherlands is near a full house following the arrival of AC Milan star Michael Essien on Monday.
The experienced midfielder took part in the training session moments after his arrival having been granted permission to absent himself from the Black Stars’ four-day training program in Accra.
The ex Chelsea star says he is ready to give off his best as the Black Stars look to impress once more again at the World Cup in Brazil.
“I am delighted to be back with the Black Stars. I am coming here to give off my best for the country,” he said.
Essien’s arrival now means only Sulley Muntari is left to complete the squad of 26 players expected to continue with their preparations in Arnhem towards the 2014 World Cup.
Mubarak Wakaso and Adam Kwarasey who originally didn’t travel with the team from Accra on Saturday night have all joined the team.
Kevin-Prince Boateng who was also not part of Ghana’s early preparations has also joined the team.
The team is currently based in Arnhem where they will be preparing for the next few days before moving to Rotterdam to face the Netherlands in an international friendly on May 31.
