The Black Stars are off to Egypt

The Black Stars of Ghana on Friday left their base in Dubai for Cairo, Egypt for the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) which starts today and ends of July 19.

The West African giants left Dubai at exactly 10:00am (6:00amGMT) on Friday and are expected to arrive in Cairo by 9:00GMT.

The Ghanaians wrapped up their camping with a friendly match against the Bafana Bafana of South Africa which ended in a goalless draw.

They are expected to stage a stupendous outing at the tournament as they seek to lift the trophy this year after 37-years of trying without success.

The four-time African champions will open their Group F fixture against Benin on June 25, play title holders Cameroun on June 29 and wrap it up with a game against Guinea-Bissau on July 2.
