Ghana's senior national team will train in Kenya for three days before next week's crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier against Uganda in Kampala.

The Black Stars will hold their training camp in Nairobi before proceeding to Kampala, where they will play Uganda in the World Cup qualifier on October 7.

Players will arrive directly in Nairobi from their clubs in Europe and elsewhere to start the preparation for the match against the Cranes.

The team will arrive in Nairobi on October 3, before crossing the border to play the Kenyan neighbors in the encounter which is expected to be explosive.

In the last match Ghana beat Congo 5-1 away. They had earlier drawn 1-1 with Congo at home.

In their first match, Ghana drew 0-0 with Uganda at home and lost 2-0 to Egypt in Alexandria in their second group match.

Meanwhile, Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah has named a 26-man squad for Ghana's upcoming World Cup qualifier against Uganda.

The squad includes debutants Kingsley Sarfo of Swedish side Malmo, USA-based Abass Mohammed, Kasim Nuhu of Swiss club Young Boys, Hearts of Oak defender Vincent Atinga and Inter Allies ace Isaac Twum.

Germany-based defender Daniel Opare returns to the side for the first time since the 2014 World Cup in Brazil following good showing for Augsburg.

Captain Asamoah Gyan and other top players like Thomas Partey, Daniel Amartey and Jonathan Mensah are also in the squad.

The three goalkeepers who were called for last month’s World Cup qualifier have all been retained. The squad will be whittled down to 23 players.
