2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers: Black Stars to hold training at Baba Yara Stadium today and Saturday

The Ghanaian national football team, the Black Stars, is set to intensify their preparations for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Central African Republic.

The team will be conducting recovery training sessions today and Saturday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in Kumasi, the venue for Monday’s crucial match.

The Black Stars arrived in Kumasi early this morning, at 1:15 am, via ASKY Airlines at the Nana Agyemang Prempeh I International Airport. Their journey to the World Cup, which is to be co-hosted by the USA, Canada, and Mexico in 2026, has been a mix of fortunes so far. In Group I of the qualifiers, Ghana has secured one win and suffered one loss in their first two matches.

The campaign commenced on a positive note with a 1-0 win over Madagascar in Kumasi. However, the team faced a setback in their next match, losing 1-0 to Comoros in Moroni. Yesterday evening, the Black Stars managed to regain their winning form, defeating Mali 2-1 in an away game. The goals were scored by Ernest Nuamah in the 58th minute and Jordan Ayew in the 90+4 minute at the Stade du 26 Mars.

Currently, Ghana is positioned second in Group I. The team is hoping to secure a victory in their next game against the Central African Republic to significantly enhance their chances of qualifying for the FIFA World Cup.
