Ghana’s England-based players have joined the Black Stars in training ahead of Sunday’s 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sao Tome and Principe.

The Ayew brothers, Andre and Jordan, and Thomas Partey took part in the team’s training on Friday, March 26 at teh Accra Sports Stadium.

The trio missed the country’s 1-1 draw against South Africa on Thursday due to COVID-19 travel challenges.

A second-half strike from Ajax star Kudus Mohammed was cancelled by Percy Tau, as both teams shared the spoils.
