Accra, May 16, GNA - The GT Premier League takes a month's break after Sunday's fixtures to afford the senior national team, Black Stars enough time to step up their preparations ahead of two crucial World Cup qualifiers against Burkina Faso and South Africa.

The Stars' play host to neighbouring Burkina Faso on Sunday, June 5, at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium and trek to Bloemfontein to face South Africa on June 18.

The GNA Sports gathered that the 25 invited players, dominated by the foreign legions would continue camping in Kumasi after the game against Burkina Faso until the Bafana Bafana clash.

The list includes seven local players - three from Accra Hearts of Oak, two from Kumasi Asante Kotoko and one each from Real Tamale United (RTU) and Kpando Heart of Lions.

The players are goalkeeper Sammy Adjei, Mohammed Sannie and Daniel Coleman (Hearts), Yusif Chibsah and Issah Ahmed (Kotoko), Hamza Mohammed (RTU) and Dramani Himinu (Lions).

The league resumes on Sunday, June 25.
