Ghana would pitch camp in Ethiopia for next month’s World Cup play-off second leg tie with after FIFA’s sanctioned Cairo as safe to host the November 19 ultimate qualifier to Brazil 2014, a Ghana FA Press Statement has confirmed.

“The Black Stars will camp in Ethiopia ahead of the second-leg of the 2014 World Cup playoff clash against Egypt. The Ghana players will be camping in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa from 11th November,” the statement read.

The Black Stars are scheduled to leave the Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa in a 3 hours 42 minutes flight to Cairo in the early hours of Monday, November 18 and expected to have their mandatory training session at the match venue – the Cairo Air Defence Stadium at match kick-off time of 6pm.

    when you guys talk about Egypt you make me think back in the days how much afraid to come to Ghana and those african countries who had civil war.. when you talk about Egypt, you must talk with respect and honored to play in Cairo, the capital of the most civilization city in the world with 7,000 years of civilization. Who is Ghana, what is your history. what is your civilization?!!
