All the 19 players invited for the Black Stars friendly match against Zambia at the Matchroom Stadium, home of English League One side, Leyton Orient in England have arrived for the kick-off tomorrow.

DAILY GUIDE SPORTS can reliably confirm that England-based players including Michael Essien, John Paintsil Richard Kingson and Laryea Kingston of Scottish side, Hearts arrived in camp yesterday to join the technical team and Harrison Afful, who is the only local player of the squad.

It was followed by the arrival of the Captain Stephen Appiah, his Deputy, John Mensah, Asamoah Gyan, Samuel Inkoom, Eric Addo, Anthony Annan, Haminu Dramani, Mattew Amoah, Prince Tagoe and Isaac Vorsah.

Qatar-based Opoku Agyemang and the Egyptian duo of Eric Bekoe and George Owu were also expected to join the team last night. Sulley Muntari was the only player who had not joined the team because he was faced with a long flight from China, where his club, Inter Milan played their local rivals Lazio in the Italian Super Cup on Saturday.

The squad was expected to have a light training on Monday evening.

Meanwhile, Coach Milovan Rajevac has revealed his intention of maintaining the winning mentality of the squad after very impressive performance in the World Cup/African Nations Cup qualifiers. The up-coming match forms part of the Black Stars preparations towards the World Cup/African Cup of Nations qualifiers in September this year. Ghana presently leads the group with a maximum nine points.
