Ex Ghanaian player Solomon Torson was also spotted at the airport on Wednesday night catching the same flight to the Netherlands.

The Sports Minister and the GFA President will witness the Black Stars training for the first time in Arnhem on Thursday.

It will also be the first time the influential personalities will be meeting Michael Essien and Kevin-Prince Boateng since the preparations for the World Cup started last week.

The Black Stars team is expected to move to Rotterdam by Friday night ahead of their friendly match against the Dutch national team on Saturday.

Coach Kwesi Appiah will them make his final cut afterwards before the team moves camp to the USA for the final leg of the preparations.

    Folks,Can any one please explain to me what the minister of sports is going to do in Holland?Is he now the De-facto GFA president? I seriously do not understand what he is going to do there that Kwasi Nyantakyi cannot do..He is too much involved in Black Stars issue...He should leave the team to concentrate and stop putting unnecessary presure on them.He should be reminded that he is the minister for sports not minister for Black Stars.
