Ghana’s national team is currently experiencing the daily frustrations of the average Ghanaian after journeying through dusty roads to train as part of their preparations for the 2023 AFCON.

2023 AFCON: Watch how Black Stars journeyed on dusty roads to train at Abrankese

The Black Stars opened camp in Kumasi earlier this week and have been training at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex at Abrankese.

This followed the Ghana Football Association’s (GFA) decision to rescind its initial choice of camping the team in South Africa.

Ghana are paired in Group B, alongside Egypt, Mozambique and Cape Verde at the AFCON, which will take place from January 13 to February 11, 2024.


Chris Hughton and his players have already trained twice at the Dr Kwame Kyei Sports Complex since opening camp in Kumasi.

However, there have been divided opinions on the quality of the training ground and the state of the routes leading to the facility.

A video shared by the Ghana GFA’s social media pages showed the Black Stars bus journeying through dusty roads to the training ground at Abrankese.

This stirred mixed reactions among Ghanaians, with some criticising the state of roads and sports facilities in the country while others also saw nothing wrong with having the players go through what the average Ghanaian goes through every day.
