Ghana to camp in Kenya ahead of Congo, England clash

Posted On Friday, 18th February 2011

Ghana will train in Kenya next month ahead of their crunch 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier Congo and the friendly against England.

Ghana need to beat Congo in Brazzaville ahead of England friendly

Ghana will train in Kenya next month ahead of their crunch 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying game with Congo and the friendly against England.

The difficult contest, which is an Africa Nations Cup qualifier, is taking place in Congo on March 26, 2011.

The Black Stars will play England three days later in a friendly in Wembley.

Ghana is confronting the match with the seriousness that it deserves, hence the decision to ferry the team to Kenya.

A GFA source said the Kenyan trip is very important for the Black Stars, as it would help them acclimatize for the weather conditions in Congo.

The GFA source added that traveling to Kenya is also aimed at helping the players have a sound mental attitude and total concentration for the game.

He could not state the exact date on which the Ghana team would emplane for Kenya but said at least they would stay in the East African country for about one week.

Ghana have failed to lift aloft the Africa Nations Cup since they won their last and fourth title in 1982 in Libya.

The Black Stars placed second in the last Africa Cup Nations where a young Ghana team lost the final game to Egypt by 1-0.

The GFA is eyeing the ultimate in the next Africa Cup of Nations so it is leaving no stone unturned in this quest.

    Training in Kenya is not a good omen. You saw what happened to the local black stars. I also don’t see how the climate in Kenya is similar to Congo.

  2. king says:

    kofi, i second to that. have they forgotten so soon. i mean the local stars camp in kenya and had the worse performance so far in the history of ghana football. why kenya again. may allah saves.

  3. Jerro,GREECE says:

    I just exclaimed when i read the headline. Jesus, what has suddenly connected us to Kenya? is it because one hotel manager has suddenly paid well? hmmmmmm

  4. Abrokwa says:

    This guys are all a joke!!!!

  5. oky says:

    serious jokes!
    how superstitious can one be?

    hmmm….. our thinking needs a paradigm shift

  6. The son of the Living God says:

    I personally don’t think camping the local Black Stars in Kenya had anything to do with the abysmal performance of the team – The team was just not up to it.

    The senior team will pitch their camp yet in Kenya but will this time produce a remarkable performance, bet my word.
    And the score, GHANA 3 – CONGO BRAZ 1. GOOD LUCKK TO THE AFRICAN STAR***

  7. kwame, Osu says:

    I think, camping at kenya will not help, looking at what happened to the local stars recently. We cannot take history out of soccer. we should let history be our guide, and look for other comping grounds for the team. Ghana cannot afford to lose these matches.
