Black Starlets touch down Abu Dhabi for final World Cup preps [SEE SQUAD LIST]

The Black Starlets arrived Abu Dhabi in the early hours of Thursday for the final lap of their preparations towards the Under-17 Fifa World Cup billed for India.

A squad of 25 players named by head coach Paa Kwasi Fabin made the trip to the UAE and have since checked into the Radisson Blu Hotel.

They were led by Management Committee chairman and member of the Ghana FA Executive Committee, Kweku Eyiah.

According to Mr. Eyiah, the Black Starlets will use the camping opportunity to engage in at least two high profile friendlies with some countries who will also be participating at the World Cup.

Tentatively, the likes of Iran and New Zealand who are also camping in the UAE have been mentioned as the Black Starlets’ likely friendly opponents.

Exactly a week from today, four players will be dropped for Ghana to submit her final 21-man squad for the World Cup. All participating countries have been given a September 21 deadline by Fifa.

Ghana, previous winners of the U-17 World Cup (on two occasions), are housed in Group A of the October 6-28 tournament alongside Colombia, the USA and hosts India.
