Accra, Mar. 18, GNA – Sudan have called off a proposed training camp in Ethiopia ahead of their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier with Ghana at the weekend.
The Desert Hawks were supposed to hold a four-day training camp in the Ethiopia capital, Addis Ababa earlier this week to fine-tune for the Group D qualifier with the Black Stars on Sunday, March 24 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi.
However, information gathered by GNA Sports indicates that the Sudan Football Association (SFA) has canceled the trip to the neighbouring city and will rather polish up at their backyard.
A highly placed source at the SFA confirmed that the team will begin camping in Khartoum on Monday, March 18 and will train for three days before leaving for Accra on Thursday.
Meanwhile, head coach Mohamed ‘Mazda’ Abdallah is expected to name his squad for the game at the close of Monday.
Ghana has three points, three shy of leaders Zambia and must win the game to boost their chances of qualifying for their third successive Mundial. The Sudanese have just a point, after being docked three points for fielding an ineligible player against Zambia in the opening game of the campaign, which they won 2-0.
