The Black Stars will be in Turkey for a three-day camping before travelling to North Africa for their second 2018 World Cup qualifier against Egypt. The Stars are scheduled to travel to Alexandria to face Group E leaders on November 13 after dropping two valuable points at home in the first group qualifier.
Reports say head coach Avram Grant requested the team gathered in Europe ahead of the crucial qualifier. The last time the Stars were in Egypt, they lost 1-2 to the Pharaohs though qualifying for the 2014 World Cup on a 7-2 aggregate scoreline. Meanwhile, the Egyptian Football Association (EFA) has announced that 50,000 fans will be allowed into the Borg El Arab Stadium to cheer the Pharaohs on.
This comes after a four-year restriction on stadium attendance after the Port Said disaster in 2012.
