Black Stars arrive in sleepy town of Oyem

The Black Stars of Ghana have arrived in Oyem for the game against DR Congo barely two hours after taking off from Port Gentil.
The Black Stars were scheduled to arrive in Oyem on Thursday but due to difficulties with flight they had to leave Port Gentille this morning.

The Stars are paying the price for a defeat to Egypt which meant they relinquished first place in Group of the Cup of Nations. The Egyptian by virtue of finishing first will stay at Port Gentil where they will welcome Morocco for their own Cup of Nations encounter.

The Stars will contine their search for an AFCON trophy for the first time in 35 years when they come up against tournament's highest scoring side DR Congo on Sunday at 4pm
