Black Stars Arrive in Bamako Ahead of Crucial 2026 World Cup Qualifier Against Mali

The Ghana national team, the Black Stars, arrived in Bamako, Mali, on Tuesday , June 4, ahead of their crucial 2026 World Cup qualifying match against Mali on Thursday. The team, consisting of all 26 invited players, checked into their hotel in the evening.

On Wednesday, June 5, the technical team, led by Coach Otto Addo, held a mandatory pre-match training session at the 50,000-capacity Stade du 26 Mars, the venue for the match. The team has no injury concerns, with defender Alexander Djiku fit after a suspected injury delayed his arrival in the Ghana camp.

Arsenal star Thomas Partey will captain the team in the absence of skipper Andre Ayew, who was not included in the squad. West Ham midfielder Mohammed Kudus and Crystal Palace forward Jordan Ayew are also available for selection.

Ghana’s last away match in the qualifiers ended in a painful 1-0 defeat against Comoros in Moroni, and the team will be seeking redemption and a better result in Bamako.
