Ghana has been paired against her West African neighbours, Cote d'Ivoire, for the qualifiers of the 2007 All Africa Games to be hosted by Algeria.

According to the Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) fixtures, Ghana will host the first leg game scheduled between December 15 - 17.

The second leg is fixed for between January 12 - 14, 2007.

The competition which is usually opened for national Under-23 sides will see the winner of the two leg qualifier facing Nigeria, the defending champions in the last games, in February 2007, with the second leg fixed for between November 9-11.

Ghana has since commenced preparations for the qualifiers following the invitation of 38 players to camp for the national Under-23 team, the Black Meteors.

The 38-man squad, which is under the technical tutelage of coach Jones Attuquayefio are expected to undergo a screening exercise to select the best materials for the assignments.

The players drawn from the camp of Premier League and Division One sides include the likes of Michael Helegbe, Anthony Annan, Edmund Owusu Peprah, George Yamoah and Douglas Nkrumah.
