Ex-Ghana stars have been visiting the Black Stars at their camping base in Arnhem as they prepare for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

Defender Hans Adu-Sarpei, who was a member of the squad which reached the quarter-final of the 2010 tournament in South Africa, watched Wednesday’s training session.

He was joined by ex-goalkeeper Abubakari Damba and Anthony Baffoe.

Then on Thursday, Dutch-based Mathew Amoah and Eric Addo, both former members of the Black Stars joined in to watch their training.

    Stay tune for my accurate predictions this year... Like I did in 2010... I almost saw everything that will happen in the first match... the match was delaying... all I saw was Dede talking to the referee... I think he will stand out... stay tuned... THE PROPHET SPEAKS!

    I made 247 foto’s today, including a video the jam session after the training. Training report: first of all I want to apologise to Kwarasey for the criticisms of yesterday. He was really the man in training today. Dauda should be deported to the bench . He is no where near Kwarasey. It was really fun seeing the unity and the love in the team today. KPB did train today and was great. He even went in with some great tackles . Dude is not even scared of getting injured. Andre Ayew, wauw what a player!!! This boy should be the boss in the team. No joke. SULLEY was man of the training today. He showed us all that he’s a better finisher than all our strikers. Wauw he scored all his set pieces and Dede was second. It was heartbreaking watching Asamoah Gyan, he missed 60% of the set pieces. Maybe he’s just having a bad day. Jordan was really great at training and there’s no doubt about him making the finalssquad. Dauda did well today but Kwarasey was, is better and will always be better. Kwadwo Asamoah should be our secret weapon at this coming WC Damn dude ook is good. The way and the positionhe trained today says it all. He will be the playmaker at the WC with Dede and KPB supporting him. If u ask me who will go home, I can give u the names of dem 4 players that are on list . But I will make u wait in patients, I could be wrong. Asamoah Gyan got angry with me and my friends today after we told him what we don’t want.We told Gyan, we dont want no heartbreaking penalties from him again and he should please be cool on the field and give us more goals. He didn’t took it I n good faith. He got angry and stuff but we apologised to him and we were cool afterwards. Coach AA is really cool and very respected by the players. KPB on ther hand thinks he’s the star player by acting big and shit. If u ask me, this dude will quite the black stars after the WC. Please I beg u all, the pictures are too much so just check my Twitter for them. Or somebody should create whatsapp group and I will send them dere. Twitter: @the_TBoy. Jesus Fanatic. Bless
