USA-based Harrison Afful and Patrick Twumasi, who plays for Kazakh side Astana, were the only absentees.

Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu, VfB Stuttgart midfielder Ebenezer Ofori, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, Edwin Gyasi, Kasim Adams Nuhu, Daniel Amartey, Nicholas Opoku, Joseph Attamah Larweh, Raphael Dwamena and Godfred Donsah all turned up.

The Black Stars will play non-league side Glo Lamp Academy in a low friendly on Thursday ahead of the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Egypt this weekend.

Coach Kwesi Appiah will use the friendly as a dress rehearsal and test some of his new troops ahead of the routine game against the North African.
