The Black Stars of Ghana have touched down in Cairo, Egypt ahead of the start of the Africa Cup of Nations tournament which kicks off today, June 21.
They will later make the trip to Ismailia where the team will play its group matches against Benin and Cameroon before moving to Suez for the final Group F fixture.
The team was met on arrival at the Cairo International Airport by Ghana’s Ambassador to Egypt, Dr Winfred Nii Okai Hammond and the Tournament LOC who presented a plaque to the Black Stars which was received by captain André Ayew.
Ghana have been drawn in Group F with Guinea-Bissau, Benin and Cameroon. The four-time winners will play their first game on Tuesday against Egypt.
Of two pre-tournament matches, Ghana lost one and drew the other, scoring no goal in the process.
Coach Kwesi Appiah however remains confident that his team will bang in the goals when they kick start the tournament.
Ghana last won the AFCON in 1982. They reached the semi-finals stage in the last six editions
