Ghana began their preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in Accra on Tuesday with 14 players.

Goalkeepers Fatau Dauda and Stephen Adams were present and joined by outfield players Rashid Sumaila, Harrison Afful, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu and Mohammed Rabiu. Others were Samuel Inkoom, Jerry Akaminko, Abdul Majeed Waris, David Accam, Kwadwo Asamoah, Afriyie Acquah, Christian Atsu and Mubarak Wakaso.

Head coach Kwesi Appiah took charge of affairs and had ex-Ghana captain Stephen Appiah, who has been named in the backroom staff also on the pitch.

The exercise lasted for about an hour and half with drills and ball work dominated activities on the pitch.

The number is expected to increase later today when Jeffrey Schlupp, Daniel Opare, Adam Larsen Kwarasey and Albert Adomah arrive.
