Black Stars To Leave For South Korea Today

The Black Stars will leave for Seoul on Saturday ahead of an exhibition match against South Korea.

Fresh from thrashing a ten-man Congo side 3-1 at the Baba Yara Stadium on Friday night, the Black Stars will travel for the Asian country for the friendly.

Defender Samuel Inkoom remains a doubt after a muscle sprain sidelined him for the African Nations Cup Group I qualifier.

Some senior players are also likely to be excused from playing in the international friendly to allow them to recover from a long-gruelling season in Europe.

Coach Goran Stevanovic will also use the match to give the opportunity to other players who did not play in the Congo game.

Ghana are also aware that losing the game in South Korea could lead to a drop in the Fifa rankings as they are now among the top 20 countries in the world.
