Ghana trained on Sunday night in anticipation of their clash with Togo on Monday at the African Cup of Nations even though the Hawks left the tournament.

Togo left the tournament on Sunday in the wake of the of a deadly attack on Friday that killed three members of the squad which prompted the government to pull its team out.

The Hawks left the tournament on Sunday hinting that they could not return to the tournament, putting their Group B game against the Black Stars in doubt.

But Ghana coach Milovan Rajevac left nothing to chance and put his squad in full readiness for the game just in case Togo turned up on Monday for the Group B game.

All the players trained as normal with only Michael Essien expected to join them later on Monday.

“We trained today [Sunday] and are keeping the team ready for the start of the group matches in the competition here in Cabinda," Ghana FA boss Kwasi Nyantakyi said.

“The match coordinator for our group came to see us this [Sunday] evening but said nothing about the situation. Caf has not informed us that Group B will be a three-team group yet.

“But when it comes to that, we would have to be ready.” 

Ghana will also play Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso on Group B.
