The team will stay at the Double Tree Hilton hotel before taking on Portugal as its group opener.

They will subsequently play Uruguay and later South Korea.

Going into the tournament, Ghanaians are hopeful the team will perform better at the Mundial amidst equaling its best record (South Africa-2010) where it’s reached the quarter-final stage.

Cameroon, Senegal and Ghana are the only three sides from the continent to have ever reached the quarter-finals stage of the competition.

The Cameroonians achieved that feat in Italian 1990, whiles Senegal equalled that mark in Japan-Korea 2002 before Ghana added its name to the record in South Africa in 2010.
