The Black Satellites rounded up their week-long preparations in the country on Tuesday when they lost 2-3 to division side, Catholic Stars.

The national side had been camping in Bolgatanga, in the northern part of the country to acclimatize with the weather pattern, which is similar to that of Ouagadougou around this season.

Ghana coach, Francis Oti Akenteng has hopeful of victory on Saturday after the team's last test game.

The Black Satellites reached this stage of the qualifying campaign, which is the last round after edging Senegal out on a 4-1 goal aggregate.

The next Championship will be hosted by Congo early next year, while the World Youth Championship is to be hosted by Canada in June 2007
