AFCON Qualifiers: Ghana, South Africa train in Cape Coast ahead of Thursday clash

Group C opponents, Ghana and South Africa, got their first feel of the Cape Coast Stadium on Tuesday when they had their respective training sessions ahead of their AFCON 2021 Qualifier on Thursday.

While the Black Stars arrived in Cape Coast on Tuesday afternoon for the match, South Africa got into the Central Regional capital on Monday after arriving in Ghana.

The Black Stars made stops at Mankessim and Winneba as part of the “Bring Back The Love” campaign and they interacted with fans and well wishers of the team.

The two teams will continue getting ready on Wednesday for their first official competitive match since AFCON 2015 where Ghana beat the Bafana Bafana 2-1 in a group encounter.

Ghana head coach, Kwesi Appiah, now has the full compliment of his team after the likes of Thomas Partey, Joseph Aidoo and Mohammed Kudus arrived in Ghana on Monday.

On Wednesday, they will both address the press as mandated by CAF and on Thursday, they will meet at the Cape Coast Stadium for the qualifier.
