Stars Arrive In Oyem For DR Congo Quarter-Final Clash

The entire squad of the senior national team touched down in Gabonese northern city of Oyem for the quarter-final clash against DR Congo on Sunday.

The team had cancelled a flight on Thursday due to undue delays.

But it made it on Friday morning with captain Asamoah Gyan also cleared to join the team to train ahead of the clash.

Ghana plays DR Congo in a match that is likely to extend the West Africans’ record in the Africa Cup of Nations history.

A win will see the Stars making a seventh successive semi-final appearance at the continental showpiece.

But it is not going to be an easy task as DR Congo won Group C. They are yet to lose at Gabon 2017.

Ghana, on the other hand, ceded Group D’s lead to Egypt in the final group game last Wednesday. They fell 0-1 to the Pharaohs, who will play Morocco in the final quarter-final encounter.

Ghana’s match with the Leopards will be played at the 20,000-capacity Stade d’Oyem at 1600GMT.
