Harrison Afful has joined up with Ghana team mates in camp for Friday's 2014 FIFA World Cup Group D qualifier against Lesotho.

The Esperance defender arrived in Kumasi on Tuesday after jetting in from the Ghana capital, Accra in the afternoon.

Afful will have his first training session on Wednesday morning as he completes the final 24-man squad selected by head coach Kwesi Appiah.
