Ghana?s national team has set its pre-African Cup of Nations camp in Abu Dhabi not Dubai as widely announced.

The Black Stars are in the United Arab Emirates to prepare for their hosting of the tournament which starts on 20 January.

Ghana is using the facilities of local club side Al Jazeera for their stay in the Middle East country.

The team has kept to its strict camping rules devoid of any destruction as Ghana prepares for the competition with more than half the number of the 27-man playing team training twice a day under French coach Claude Le Roy.

The city was chosen because it shares a similar climatic condition with Accra where the Black Stars will be playing their Group A matches.

Their group opponents are Morocco, Guinea and Namibia.

Abu Dhabi is a city with rich historic background dating back to some 200 years ago.
