Ghana's All African Games women's football team, the Black Princesses return to camp on Thursday to continue their planning for their first major international competition.

The team enjoyed a one week break but resume preparations ahead of next month's competition.

Coach of the Under-19 team, Mumuni Gamel and the rest of his backroom staff with barely a month for their Group B opener against host, Algeria on July 9 in the competition have called up 25 players to the national camp in Prampram.
