The team will leave Ghana for Niger today to continue preparations for the competition that begins on February 2nd and ends on 17th of the same month.

Coach Cobblah will prune the squad to a final 21 man squad to make way for some of the top stars who are currently involved in club duties in Europe.

The Black Satellites have been in camp for the past three months, where they were engaged in a couple of friendlies.
