Midfielder Mubarak Wakaso spent his afternoon with his wife and kids as he prepares to depart with the Black Stars to their camping base in Rotterdam on Saturday evening.

The 23-year-old played in the 6-1 thrashing of a locally select side in an exhibition match on Friday meant to bid the team an official farewell as they embark on yet another World Cup campaign.

Wakaso who plays for Russian club Rubin Kazan stayed indoors to spend precious time with his family before catching the Black Stars flight to Rotterdam - where the team will be camping for a week.

Coach Kwesi Appiah is taking his team to Rotterdam to intensify preparations towards the World Cup in Brazil.

The Black Stars will take on the Netherlands in an international friendly on May 31 before moving to the USA to conclude the preparations.

Ghana will play its final warm up match against Korea Republic in Miami on June 9 and will travel to their team base in Maceio two days later ahead of their opening Group G game against USA on June 16.

    That's what happens in a country where the system is so porous to the extent that people creat their own birth certificates. I bet the president probably has fake age, and birth

    He is 33 thats his real age, but football age is 23. I feel we have too much of him and the leftees.....which means someone has to go home

    Muslims marry earlier. Some even marry when they are in school so this has nothing to do with age

    Wakaso is doing a good job off field. Three beautiful kids and he is only 23. His boy looks like 5 year old which means at 18 Wakaso was dancing in bed. BAD BOY.
