Ghana will arrive in Egypt on Thursday January 20 for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Coach Kwesi Appiah is preparing to name his final 23-man squad for the competition in Egypt.

The team have been camping in Dubai for the past one week where they played Namibia in a warm-up friendly on Sunday.

The Black Stars will further take on South Africa in another friendly before leaving for Egypt.

The contingent is hence expected in Ismailia a day before the tournament kicks off.

Ghana is paired in the same group with defending Champions Cameroon, Benin and Guinea Bissau.

Having already won the competition on four occasions, Ghana will seek to clinch the title for the first time in 37 years.
