Patrice Beaumelle’s squad arrived in Accra on Friday afternoon and had a session in stride.

That session saw the participation stars the likes of AC Milan playmaker Franck Kessié, Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier as well as Mohammed Kudus’ Ajax teammate Sebastien Haller.

The Elephants have beaten South rivals Burkina Faso during their first friendly 2-1 with Manchester United wonderkid Amad Diallo scoring a last-minute free-kick to secure the win for his side.

Both team will reunite for the very first time since the final of AFCON 2015 which Elephants clinched at the expense of Black Stars. Revenge in the air.
