Black Stars to arrive in rainy Natal on Sunday

Ghana will arrive in Natal on Sunday ahead of their opening World Cup group match against the United States with another headache to deal with; the rain.

Natal has seen two days of heavy downpour.

The team has been based in Maceio, which has been reasonably dry, but will now have to contend with a very wet playing surface at the new fangled Estadio Dunas.

Fans have also been affected by the weather particularly those from the U.S.A who spoke to

"We cannot believe this downpour. We came here for some fun and sun but this is just crazy" a disappointed fan remarked.

Kwesi Appiah's squad will leave their camp in Maceio at 09:00am [12:00GMT] for the venue of their opening match.

The team will attend the mandatory pre-match conference with the media later in the day.
