Black Stars get ready for Cranes test

The Black Stars camp would be bolstered by the arrival of two more players on Friday as Junior Agogo and Haminu Draman both join in.

The Black Stars will arrive in Tamale, in the northern part of Ghana on Saturday to play Uganda in an international friendly, a day after.

Milovan Rajevac has camped his team throughout the week in Accra, the capital, where the Black Stars on Thursday tested their preparedness for the game against the Cranes on Sunday with a 2-2 draw with second-tier side King Solomon at the El-Wak Stadium.[url]

Opoku Agyeman and Bernard Kumordzi were on hand to score for the national side.

The friendly against Uganda’s Cranes - who arrive on Friday - at the Tamale Sports Stadium is a prelude to the team’s preparation for 2010 World Cup double-header next month.

Ghana faces two tough away matches in the 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign this June with the Black Stars paired against Mali on June 7 and a game with Sudan, thirteen days later.

The Black Stars sit at the summit of the Group D standings after securing an opening day win in the qualifying campaign.
