The Black Queens are expected to open camp later today with a host of players already arriving in camp last night ahead of Friday’s fixture against Namibia.
Ghana face Namibia in the last round of qualifiers for the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Morocco.
Captain Portia Boakye, FC Nordsjaelland’s Jennifer Cudjoe, Cynthia Konlan and Doris Boaduwaa are among the players to have arrived in camp already.

Ampem Darkoa Ladies’ Comfort Yeboah, Stella Nyamekye, Grace Asantewaa and Alice Kusi are also present in the camp.
Jacqueline Owusu and Sherifatu Sumaila are among the returnees in the head coach’s 23-woman squad for the game.
The Black Queens are looking to qualify for the tournament for the first time since the group stage exit in 2018 when the competition was hosted in Ghana.
The team has also failed to qualify for the last two editions of the tournament and are keen to be present next year.
Nora Hauptle’s side have had an easy run in the buildup to the final round of qualifier after brushing aside Rwanda in a 12-0 aggregate win back in September.
The Ghanaians will be hoping for a strong win at the Accra Sports Stadium on December 1 in the first leg to ensure a less challenging task in the return fixture.
