Black Starlets leave for UAE camping with 25 players

Published on: 14 September 2017

The Black Starlets left Accra on Wednesday for the capital city of the United Arab Emirates for a pre-FIFA U17 World Cup training.

A total of 25 players made the trip to Abu Dhabi to step up preparations after which the team would be cut to 21 for the tournament in India from 6-24 October.

The team was initially scheduled to camp in Denmark but visa requirements from the Danish Embassy in Accra meant they had to utter their plans and opt for a different country.

The Starlets are expected to play a number of warm-up games with qualified teams, who are also camping in the Asian country.

Ghana are in Group A against India, Colombia, and USA.
