The Black Stars hit the ground running next week with preparation but defender Samuel Inkoom has already gotten to work in the gym as he gets his body into shape before he joins the entire squad. 

The 24-year-old FC Dnipro full-back was the first foreign-based star to arrive in Ghana after helping Greek side Platanias survive relegation and maintain their top-flight status.

On Sunday morning training, the former FC Basel star is in his brilliant gym wear showing muscles and biceps in a gym.

While there is a space for some family holiday after returning home early, Inkoom always has got an eye on his fitness as he takes to the gym at his free time.

    Bravo!!! Incoom, you have shown the way to a successful campaign. That is what every Black Stars players should be doing and even more. Carry bags of cement everyday and run across the mountains. I saw a German world cup preparation documentary and I was shocked at the level of physical drills. Ghana has been to two world cup, but the preparations for the third world cup should be the toughest in physical preparation if we want result. If the GFA officials are listening then I plead with them to employ the Ghana military to assist toughen the players. Serious physical drills is what can ensure a 90 minute total football against running horses like Ronaldo and the rest. A word to the wise?.

    Dis guy inkoom should nt make De squad. He still plays like a kid. We can't rely on him on De right back cos he can simply give away penalties easy...

    The truth ooo..his crossing is bad,he runs like a car with loose breaks and ends up no where,he looses 50/50 balls,he can't even make decent tackles and am sorry for him.he wasn't that bad till he moved from Basel to Ukraine.He is not the inkoom we used to know.I don't think he has a place with the current squad.

    @ Askantwi I totally agree with you. Inkoom does not need to impress any body because we all know what a great player he is. We tolerated Asamoah Gyans incompetence for so long until he found his place in the UAE. We like sabotaging talents while encouraging those trying hard to acquire one. If any body thinks inkoom is not good enough I want to see that person replace him on the pitch of play himself. Just join the team and make your point by playing better than inkoom, period.

    Inkoom is the BEST right full back Ghana has. You don't agree, go jump down a well.
