Ghana will have lined up two friendly games in the United Arab Emirates to prepare for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

The Black Stars left Accra on Monday evening for the UAE where they will embark on a 12-day camping before leaving to Gabon for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

Coach Avram Grant has lined up two low profile games to keep the team good shape for the Africa Cup of Nations.

However, the two oppositions are yet to be announced, but it is understood that the Black Stars are expected to face some of the other African countries who will also be preparing in Al Ain for the AFCON.

The 2017 Africa Cup of Nations kicks off in 2 January, 2017.
