Black Stars to start World Cup camping on 25 May

Posted On Monday, 9th December 2013
Black Stars will start camping on 25 May for the World Cup.

Black Stars will start camping on 25 May for the World Cup.

Ghana will begin camping for the 2014 Brazil World Cup finals on 25 May, the Ghana Football Association has confirmed.

This will be one-week after all the major European Leagues (where the majority of Ghana players are based) have come to an end.

Preparations will continue until 11 June, a day before the official opening of the tournament.

Venue for camping and opponents for international friendly matches will be confirmed early next year.

“We will be discussing with a number of match organizers and agents; probable opponents we will be playing during the preparation period, ” Ghana FA president Kwesi  Nyantakyi revealed.

“We will also be looking at possible venues for our preparations; the incentive or package for the team; issues of psychology, physiotherapy, medical issues to make our team is fully prepared for this World Cup competition. ”

Ghana are in Group G alongside Germany, Portugal and USA.

    Friendly matches for the Black Stars should be played on neutral grounds.Playing matches against top teams at their backyard often leads to defeat which demoralises team spirit and does not give a true picture of our team.Our top players should be adviced to stay out of injuries so we can have a good bench.

      If you are a good team it doesn’t matter where you play.I would prefer we play aganst the likes of brazil and England at their home grounds.If we can rise against the crowd and get good results all the better for our confidence.If we lose we know we have work to do.Dont forget we got hammered 4-1 by Holland in heir backyard a week before the 2010 world cup yet we went very far and almost got a repeatwith them.

    What about world cup base????

    WORDS OF CAUTION TO AKWASI APPIAH
    Finally, the ball is in our court and I think, I agree with AA when he said it all boils down to preparation. What I will like to add though is commitment, stamina, prevention of naivety (concentration at all time) and our technical bench.
    PREPARATION
    Physical
    I think we need to prepare well physically to give us the stamina we need. The members of the BS team should on individual basis begin to work on their stamina so that they can go all out during the tournament should they be selected. The Ghanaian players to avoid any lackadaisical attitudes in each of the 90 minutes they will play.
    Psychology
    Players of the BS team should begin to put it in their minds that they are going out there to win each and every match no matter the pedigree of the opposing teams. I mean “the can do spirit”. The Ghanaian psychologist needs to begin working on the team right now!!!
    TECHNICAL BENCH
    Possible Oppositions
    First of all, with the draws out I think the video analyst should begin to look out for the shortfalls of all the teams we have been paired with and AA work out good strategies to map out these teams like he did to Egypt. He must choose teams with similar strategies for our international friendly games and try these strategies base on the strong and weaknesses of these teams to see how those strategies will work. Going forwards AA should know that there is possibility that the teams we are going to meet might be able to either passes the ball than us or try to catch us on swift counter attacks or surprise us with long passes. There can also be a situation where opposing teams might try to get set pieces in dangerous positions or even cause numerical disadvantage. In the mist of all these in AA’s mind how is he going to map out a strategy to avoid all these problems? For instance, in the return match against Egypt his strategy of swift counter attack did not work well. Although we got a consolation goal through that in the dying minute of the match, I think that strategy was well executed. How is he going to correct that?
    Concentration
    If I am to remind AA of the 2006 world cup in Germany, we lost to Brazil by three goals. In that match we had more possession of the ball than the Brazilians however; it only took two piercing passes from Ronaldinho which caught our defense flat and sleeping. In fact, such passes threatened our defense throughout that game. How is AA going to prevent such technical disability from happening to this team?
    Lessons learned?
    In our match against Egypt in Kumasi although we won that match 6-1 against Egypt, AA made a basic mistake which when made in the world cup could cause us a red card and therefore numerical disadvantage. This is the foul committed by Rashid Sumaila which caused us the penalty. In the first place I think it was a red card offense and when he escaped what AA should have done was to substitute him. In the big stage like the world cup what the opposing team will do is always try to attack through him to commit another bookable offence. Had RS attracted the red card could BS have won by that margin?
    I must also state that the continuing turning of one of the most skillful players in the team into a defender in the person of Kwadwo Asamoah is not helping the team. He should rather find a player who can do his work at the left back position well to free KA rather than the current approach.
    Ghana’s Group
    With our group for this coming 2014 world cup, I think it is a good group for us, if we really want to go farther than the previous world cups. Unless, we are just there to add to the numbers because it is the toughest of all the groups and if we are able to sail through in this group “Isha Allah” we can be sure of reaching the semis and then to the final. After all, as the saying goes “one need to be better than good in order to compete with the best of the world”
    Wish you well AA.

  4. fred says:

    yes we have to start as early as possible.we can sail through to the top wen we prepare hard.guys we have Soccernet watsup page if u are interested just push these digits 0543698566

  5. Desmond says:

    IF WE WANT TO GO FAR IN THIS TOURNAMENT .WE SHOULD TRY OUR STRIKERS .I THINK JORDAN AND BOAKYE YIADOM SHOULD BE GIVEN THE NOD OF PARTNERSHIP BECAUSE THE WILL BE SITUATIONS WHEREBY ASAMOAH GYAN MAY NOT HAVE A GOOD DAY.
    SECONDLY IS THE CASE OF THE GOALKEEPERS
    I THINK KWARASEY HAVE THE EXPERIENCE WHEN IT COMES TO INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL AND SHOULD BE GIVEN ALL THE CONFIDENTS.
    OUR MIDFIELD IS THE MAIL PROBLEM BECAUSE ESSIEN AND MUNTARI CANNOT KEEP THE PACE OF SOME FAST MIDFIELDERS SUCH AS SHURRLE OF GERMANY NANNI OF PORTUGAL AND CHRISTIANO RONALDO.
    IF WE ABLE TO BUILD A VERY STRONG MIDFIELD WITH GOOD 90 PERCENT PASSES ACCURACY.I THINK WE CAN GO FAR IN THIS TOURNAMENT.
    IF OUR PASSES ARE NOT ACCURATE WE GOING TO LOOSE THE BALL IN THE MIDFIELD.
    ALSO DEDE AYEW AND KWADWO ASAMOAH SHOULD KNOW THE TECHNICAL MINDSET OF THE TEAM IS IN THEIR HANDS SO THEY NEED TO MAKE GOOD USEOF THE BALL AND GIVE KILLER INSTINCT TO THE STRIKERS.

  6. Boro says:

    Brilliant observation Desmond, I hope the coach sees this also!!!!!

  7. Crusader7 says:

    Let’s get Sammy Adjei and Amoako in shape to add to Kwarasey. Let’s put prejudices aside and go for our best. our succes will depend on goodgoalkeeping

  8. Crusader7 says:

    We should be having short spells of training before the May date. AA should send to likely players a fitness regime plan. That should form the basis for monitoring during the period before May

  9. Regobert says:

    These are the intelligent observations, analysis and views that we need now to help our entire team to make us proud. My hope is that, the technical team and the powers that be are listing to these “voices crying louder in the wilderness” we need to do is adequate preparations and hoping that injuries don,t rock us.

  10. Dr. Zomito says:

    Jordan is not yet ready. We should wait till he is matured. There are many strikers above him no favoritism.

  11. John says:

    We should organize matches against opponents like Colombia, Belgium, Mexico and Brazil to test our defence. Unfortunately Spain and Holland would be reluctant to play us, as their poule doesn’t contain an African team.

  12. jj says:

    guys look at shadrach eghan of fc twente. Looks like a good player only 19 and playing first team aswell. He deserves a call up over adomah or deffinitely over adiyah.

  13. Emmanuel Braimah says:

    Ghana will seal through
